September 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm UTC+0

Nuit Blanche audiences will have a rare chance to listen to a shehnai, sitar and tabla performance featuring the Divine Trio, with Vidushi Mita Nag, one of the best-known female Sitar players in India today, the sensational young Shehnai player Janab Hassan Haider Khan, and Tabla maestro Pt. Subhen Chatterjee

Vidushi Mita Nag

Vidushi Mita Nag is the daughter and disciple of sitar maestro Padma Shree Pandit Manilal Nag of Kolkata and the grand daughter of Sangeetacharya Gokul Nag of the Vishnupur gharana. The Nag family of sitarists have six generations of lineage rooted in the town of Bankura in West Bengal since the days of Ramshankar Bhattacharya, one of the earliest musicians of this gharana.

Mita’s initiation into sitar playing under her mother at the age of four years was encouraged by her illustrious grandfather, and the seeds of the early years matured under her Guru and father. She made her debut performance at the age of 10. She has since performed both solo performances and duets with her father, all over the world.

Janab Hassan Haider Khan

Janab Hassan Haider Khan hails from a family that has been playing the Shehani for generations. He is the grandson of Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan and the son of Shehnai Nawaz Ustad Ali Ahmed Hussain Khan. His great grand father, Ustad Wazir Ali Khan was the first musician to ever perform Shehnai at Buckingham Palace in 1910.

Hassan Haider Khan received his training in the Benaras and Senia Gharanas from his father, and he also learned from Pt. Arvind Parikh, the sitar maestro from the Imdadkhani Gharana. He has performed for prestigious festivals in India such as the Dover Lane Music Conference and has also travelled abroad and performed in Europe and North America.

Pandit Subhen Chatterjee

Pandit Subhen Chatterjee belongs to the Lucknow gharana and has studied under the tabla maestro Pandit Swapan Chowdhury. He has also learnt from masters from other gharanas, and incorporated the intricacies and beauty of these gharanas into his playing, making for a delightful listening experience.

Apart from being an excellent soloist, Subhen ji is a much sought-after accompanist, having played with the who’s-who of raag sangeet (Indian classical music). He has accompanied artists like as Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Vidushi Girija Devi, Ustad Rashid Khan, Ustad Shahid Parvez, Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar, to name a few. His performances have well received in the press and made him an audience favourite.
