Sitar, Shakir Khan
Shakir Khan presents an evening of north Indian ragas on Sitar, accompanied by Amit Kavthekar on Tabla. Shakir is one of the most promising young exponents of the legendary Etawah Gharana, energetically following in the musical footsteps of his prodigious father and guru — the sitar maestro Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan. Indeed, Shakir represents the eighth generational link in an unbroken chain of musical talent and tradition poured exclusively into the sitar and surbahar. A chain that includes, besides Ustadji, the musical legacy of Ustad Aziz Khan (Shakir’s paternal grandfather), and that of the patriarchal surbaharist Ustad Wahid Khan (Shakir’s great grandfather). Great Ustad Vilayat Khan is his grand uncle. The PCA is a charming, historic hall at Westford Common. Seating is at cafe tables, providing a relaxed atmosphere. Attendees are welcome to bring their own food and drinks to enjoy during the concert.
