Sitar recital by Nishat Khan this evening

In a program organized by Sangeet Ashram and Young Leaders Forum at the G D Birla Sabhaghar this evening, Nishat Khan performed a solo recital of sitar with Sabir Khan accompanying him on tabla.

After an interactive session for about an hour on elaboration of his role as a Bollywood music director and fielding general questions from the audience – Nishat Khan played a wonderful rendition of Hameer – rarely heard these days.

Shorter but skilful raagas Nand and Shankara (another rarely heard) followed. Program ended with a tune composed by him for a Bengali song.

Detailed report/critique will be posted soon.
