Arshad Khan

Profile Image

Arshad Khan is a leading exponent of the esraj, a rare bowed-fretted instrument from Bengal, long associated with Sikh devotional music. The esraj has been declining in popularity for decades, but is enjoying a resurgence thanks to the ‘Gurmat Sangeet’ revival movement of Sikh spiritual song. Arshad plays classically as well as bringing his instrument’s rich, vocalistic tone to soundtracks and fusion projects.
