”Raga Jhinjhoti felt like a deep full body & soul massage with frequent goose bump shivers. Ustaad ji’s unique delivery of the composition by both sitar and vocal touched all my emotional strings. I hope there will be many more to come.”
”What did I hear on Saturday, 3rd October? How did it feel? I simply don’t have words to describe. I will just give it a try in the few following lines. Shujaat ji made us experience the beauty of the way a flower, named Jhinjhoti, blooms. Each leaf of that flower had its own fragrance which spread to the souls of the listeners. Towards the end of the concert, he started singing, and this made us drown in our own musical tears. Maybe salvation feels like that. My deepest respect and thanks to Shujaat ji for his music and Nihar bhai, who gave soulful support on the tabla.”
”Listening to Ustad Shujaat Khan’s rendition of Raag Jhinjhoti was truly unforgettable. Slowly and skillfully, the master made every note unfold itself fully to the audience, causing an onrush of nothing but beautiful and deep emotions spiraling up. I was touched in the deepest of my soul, countless shivers sent to my spine. We were not simply listening to Jhinjhoti, we were in it and it lived in us. The talented Nihar Mehta also deserves great appreciation, the conversation between his tabla and ustad’s sitar was perfect, playful and a true delight to witness. I rightfully did not want to miss this concert and its memory will stay close to my heart.”
”The concert was truly amazing. Being in the presence of such a master in the west is an honor that all should seek to experience at least once. The musical journey was enrapturing, full of nuances, depth and space. It was a rare soul enriching experience and I am grateful that I could assist. I am looking forward to the next concert.”
