SONGS FROM THE SILK ROAD
– Living Legend Shujaat Hussain Khan live in Vienna

“His music is psychology and wisdom about how to put notes together” – Village Voice, New York
“The music was as much a speeding locomotive as it was intricate tapestry” – The Washington Post
“The lyrical eloquence was like someone humming phrases, it was magical” – San Francisco Chronicle
“Brilliant mind and brilliant technique combined in young Shujaat, produced a brilliant performance” – Die Welt
“Arguably the year’s best world music album.” – Village Voice, New York
 

Grammy-nominated Sitar-Virtuoso SHUJAAT HUSSAIN KHAN, in Europe very famous for his fusion album GHAZAL – THE RAIN with Iranian master musician Kayhan Kalhor, is performing one of his very rare Austria concerts!

New Delhi-based Shujaat Hussain Khan, son of Ustad Vilayat Khan, is today considered the world’s finest Sitar player. His family invented the GAYAKI-style of Indian music in which the instrumentalist recreates the human voice with his instrument with all nuances and colors. Apart from that Shujaat Khan is the only Sitar master worldwide who plays Sitar and sings simultaneously.

His vocal renderings of the Sufi songs of Amir Chosrau (1253-1325), Kabir (1440 – 1518) und Bulleh Shah  (1680–1757) are legendary.
Shujaat Khan has released more than 60 albums and received all major Indian music awards.
He will be accompanied by the New Delhi-based Tabla Masters  AMIT CHOUBEY and SAPAN ANJARIA.
