Sitar Recital by
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 second concert, we are thrilled to present the gifted Tabla player Rohan Bhogal who joins Shakir Ji. Great maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain has trained Rohan, and as you will watch him play in this concert, his Tabla playing will leave you spellbound.
The concert will showcase the soulful Raag Charukeshi in its first part. Known as the Raag of the heart, Raag Charukeshi profoundly affects the ‘Spirit Chakra’ located between the Solar Plexus and the heart, which can alleviate heart-related ailments. Shakir Ji’s Sitar playing will transport the audience on a captivating journey through the serene melody of Raag Charukeshi.
