Shujaat Husain Khan is perhaps the greatest North Indian musician of his generation, and the son and disciple of the legendary sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. His musical pedigree continues back through his grandfather, Ustad Inayat Khan; his great-grandfather, Ustad Imdad Khan; and his great-great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan - each one a legend of his generation. Performing with Khan will be Samir Chaterjee on tabla.

Opening act: There will be a vocal recital by the brilliant vocalist Purvi Parikh of the Kirana Gharana, the daughter of the celebrated sitarist Arvind Parikh, himself a disciple of Ustad Vilayat Khan, and the distinguished Kirana vocalist, Kishori Parikh.
