Scintillating Sitar by Ustad Shahid Parvez

Raag-Mala Toronto, in partnership with Ruby Mukherjee, presents a sitar recital by Ustad Shahid Parvez on Saturday, October 28th at 8pm at the Aga Khan Museum Auditorium, 77 Wynford Drive, Toronto.

Ustad Shahid Parvez was trained by his father Ustad Aziz Khan, and is one of the leading exponents of the Etawah gharana, a musical tradition which is famous for the gayaki ang (vocal style) of performance.  Ustadji represents the sixth generation in this esteemed gharana, and is considered to be at the peak of his formidable musical powers. In the words of the The Hindu, he is "Indian music personified". Ustadji maintains a rigorous worldwide tour schedule and leaves audiences in awe after each performance.  He will be accompanied on tabla by Subhajyoti Guha, a talented tabla Nawaz from Kolkata.
