Celestial Music Concert featuring Hidayat Husain Khan

Magic of a sitar maestro

Please join us in experiencing the magic and extraordinary musical expression of Hidayat Husain Khan! 

A direct descendant and proponent of one of the most treasured lineages of Eastern classical music and the youngest son of the legendary Ustad Vilayat Khan, Hidayat Husain Khan harbors a rare, creative brilliance that effortlessly takes him across all genres and nuances of music. An exquisite sitar player and vocalist well-versed in the ‘Gayaki ang’, a unique rendition where voice blends with the instrument, Hidayat Khan carries the torch of a coveted lineage spanning seven generations of outstanding vocal and instrumental musicians. On May 11th, Hidayat Husain Khan will be accompanied on tabla by Dibyarka Chatterjee, disciple and son of Pandit Samir Chatterjee.

The concert will begin with a vocal performance by Miral Vaghela from the Pandit Jasraj Institute for Music Research, Artistry, and Appreciation. Mir Naqibul Islam, a disciple of Pt. Anindo Chatterjee and Pt. Ashoke Paul will accompany Miral on tabla.
