One of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of our time, Shujaat Khan is “world music at its best” (Billboard). 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). Most known for his gayaki ang style of sitar playing, a method that aims to match the subtleties of the human voice, Khan has recorded over 60 albums and garnered a Grammy® nomination.
