In this grand evening, Shakir Khan showcases the art of the Sitar alongside maestro Pt Sanju Sahai on Tabla. 

The eight generation in an unbroken chain of musical tradition as the son of the great Ustad Shahid Parvez, Shakir stands out for his exquisite sense of sur (melody) and laya (rhythm) and is a shining star of the modern era. Shakir Khan is one of the most promising young exponents of the Etawah Gharana, energetically following in the footsteps of his prodigious father, Sitar maestro Ustad Shahid Parvez.

Pt Sanju Sahai is a household name in the world of Tabla and is the torchbearer of the Banaras gharana. Upholding tradition with his powerful playing, Pt Sanju Sahai is a direct descendant of the father of the Banaras Gharana, Pt Ram Sahai.

This event is in collaboration with Sitar Music Society and London Sitar Academy as part of International Sitar Festival 2019.
