Ustad Waseem Khan

Single Bill

An extraordinary full evening concert featuring Ustad Waseem Khan from the Agra Gharana. 



Khan will transport you into the gripping improvised world of khayal (imagination) through his velvety, exquisitely expressive voice and his penetrating sense of drama - the trademark of the Agra gharana (school of music). Khan took his initial training from his grandfather and stalwart, Ustad Ata Hussain Khan Saheb, at just six years old. Thereafter, he continued his taalim (knowledge) from his father, Ustad Naseem Ahmed Khan Saheb, and grandfather, Ustad Shafi Ahmed Khan Saheb. Witness the exploration of the raag as he paints surreal imagery in your mind. He is accompanied uniquely by sarangi master, Hussain Khan, and the superb Kulkarni on harmonium. Rayatt provides sublime rhythmic support on the tabla.
