Sitar Maestro / Imdad Khani Gharana 

"Ghazal...Shujaat Khan on sitar and Swapan Chaudhuri on tabla -- and an Iranian kamancheh (spike fiddle) player, Kayhan Kalhor, seek a common ground in music that can be meditative or dazzlingly virtuosic"

The New York Times

Shujaat Husain Khan is one of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of his generation. He belongs to the Imdad Khan gharana of the sitar and his style of playing sitar, known as the gayaki ang, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice.
