SHUJAAT HUSAIN KHAN (article first published : 2007-08-19)

Shujaat Husain Khan - perhaps the greatest North Indian classical musician of his generation – returns to Durban for one show only on September 1 bought to South Africa as a gesture of goodwill by New National Assurance.

The internationally-respected sitar player’s style known as the gayaki ang, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice. He came to South Africa in 2006 - also for one show only - and was so well received, that he returns for a third visit hosted again by New National Assurance.

Shujaat Husain Khan belongs to the Imdad Khan gharana (tradition) of the sitar (lute) and is the seventh in the unbroken line from his family that has produced many musical masters. The son and disciple of master sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan, his musical pedigree continues back through his grandfather, Ustad Inayat Khan; his great-grandfather, Ustad Imdad Khan; and his great-great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan - all leading artists of their generation.

The performance on September 1 takes place in the Playhouse Opera. Booking is at Computicket.
