An evening with Sitar Maestro Ustad Shujaat Khan, accompanied on tabla by Shankh Lahiri and Dibyarka Chatterjee

For one night only, The Ringling presents sitarist Shujaat Khan, one of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of our time. Khan is most known for his gayaki ang style of sitar playing, a method that aims to match the subtleties of the human voice. With a musical pedigree that goes back seven generations, Khan’s adept sitar playing blends with finely-crafted, “sliding melodies of his vocalized style…into an irresistible expression of creative musical passion” (Los Angeles Times). Khan is known for emphasizing the rich tonality of the sitar and taking an intuitive and spontaneous approach to rhythm.
