Since 2016, our World Music Series has been connecting cultures and inspiring conversations. This season the series continues under a new banner of Global Conversations with the rhythms and sounds of Syria, Mali, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, and Canada.
Enjoy a dazzling and energetic performance by Shahid Parvez Khan, a seventh-generation sitarist and one of the leading exponents of the North Indian Etawah gharana, a centuries-old house of music. He is accompanied by Subhajyoti Guha on the tabla.
Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan descends from six generations of sitarist players. In the words of the The Hindu, he is “Indian music personified.” Khan was introduced and trained by his father, Ustad Aziz Khan, to vocal music, table, and sitar at a young age, and proved to be a child prodigy. He gave his first public performance at the age of eight.
