The South Asia Institute at Columbia University presents a concert featuring Shujaat Husain Khan (sitar) and Samir Chatterjee (tabla). Khan is one of the leading North Indian classical musiciands of his generation. He belongs to the Imdadkhani Gharana (tradition) of the sitar and his style of playing sitar, known as the gayaki ang, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice. Samir Chatterjee is a virtuoso Tabla player from the Farrukhabad Gharana (school). He has traveled widely across the world to perform at festivals as a soloist or with other outstanding musiciands from Indian and western musical traditions.
