Shakir Khan with Amit Kavthekar Concert

Sitar Recital by
Shakir Khan

Shakir Khan, one of the most talented young sitar players of the Etawah Gharana, is closely following the footsteps of his illustrious father and guru, the legendary sitar maestro Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan. Shakir is blessed with the influence of great maestros from the Sitar’s first family and represents the eighth generation of this rich musical legacy.

Shakir Ji’s sitar performances are truly enchanting as they exude the rich traditional heritage and artistic nuances of the Etawah Gharana. His musical voice and detailed understanding of rhythm and melody never fail to win the hearts of his audiences.

Sangeet Sabha has had the honour and privilege of featuring the incredible talent of Shakir Ji on multiple occasions. We are thrilled to announce a series of three exclusive concerts featuring this young maestro. Each concert promises to be a unique experience, showcasing the grandeur of musical talent presented by these artists. As ambassadors of Indian Classical Music, these young musicians are captivating audiences worldwide, shining a light on our rich cultural heritage.

In the third concert in this series, Shakir Ji is joined by yet another talented musician, percussionist, soloist and accompanist, Amit Kavthekar, who has trained with the depths of ‘Punjab Gharana’ under the guidance of the legendary Late Ustad Allah Rakha Khan Sahab. Amit Ji still continues to learn from the maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain Ji.

This concert is special as Shakir Ji presents Raag Jhinjhoti, a melodious evening raag perfectly suited for a rendition on an instrument like Sitar
