Sitar Maestro Nishat Khan

Sitar virtuoso, Nishat Khan has an impeccable international reputation and the north indian is regarded as one of the towering performers of the pre-eminent instrument of Indian classical music.

His long and distinguished career began at the age of seven and by sixteen he was performing ragas at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall with Ravi Shankar in front row attendance. With a sitar-playing lineage that goes back to the court of the Mughal emperor, his late father and mentor Ustad Imrat Khan has been a constant inspiration. Many regard him as the fastest sitar-playing maestro alive; his shows are always spellbinding and hypnotic with incredible emotional charge.

Khan has graced the most prestigious concert venues across the globe including Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center in New York, and in 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the BBC Proms where he premiered “The Gate of the Moon (Sitar Concerto No 1)” in collaboration with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and David Atherton.

He returns to London to perform at the prestigious Union Chapel, accompanied by tabla player Pandit Sanju Sahai and with it’s “infinite and imaginative variety”, as declared by The Guardian, this is truly to be a magical evening.
