World Music Institute Presents USTAD IMRAT KHAN Tonight

A rare opportunity to hear a living legend of Indian classical music, sitar and surbahar maestro Ustad Imrat Khan, with his world renowned son, sarod maestro Ustad Wajahat Khan.

Guardian of the great heritage of a centuries-old musical dynasty, Ustad Imrat Khan is ­considered a living legend of Indian classical music. At 78, he is the most senior member of the Etawah Gharana, a line of master musicians dating back to the Mogul courts. Maestro of the sitar and surbahar (a bass ­version of the sitar developed by his great-grandfather), he is a consummate musician who has made the melodic subtleties of raag and the rhythmic intricacies of taal accessible to audiences around the world. He will be performing on sitar, accompanied by the illustrious Pandit Anindo Chatterjee on tabla.

He will be joined by a special guest, his son, sarod maestro Ustad Wajahat Khan, who has energized the performance repertoire and art of sarod playing with his revolutionary contributions and pioneering world music collaborations.
