Ustad Irshad Khan: Surbahar and Sitar

May 14, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

Ustad Irshad Khan: Surbahar and Sitar
Torch Bearer of Imdad Khani Etawa Gharana

Son and disciple of the maestro Ustad Imrat Khan, Irshad rendered his first stage performance at the age of 8. A child prodigy, Ustad Irshad Khan has emerged among the torch-bearers of the iconic Sitar Gharana, the Imdad Khani Etawah Gharana.
Irshad Khan has developed and advanced the technique of Surbahar and Sitar by introducing many musical innovations, including left hand meends and right hand tantra techniques. His style is a combination of the authentic gayaki ang and tantra ang Baaj (both Vocal and instrumental playing on the Sitar), gaining comprehensive mastery over every major aspect of Hindustani classical music.
Having performed at major venues and festivals around the globe, Irshad Khan is considered among the leading Surbahar and Sitar players of today. He has homes in Toronto and Kolkata, and he is the founding president of Universal Academy for musicians, which has branches in Toronto, Rochester NY and Kolkata.
He will be accompanied on tabla, by GTA-based, Osbert Lyall.
