Shujaat Khan gilt als einer der größten Sitarspieler der Gegenwart. Er entstammt einer indischen Musikerdynastie, sein Vater ist der legendäre Sitarspieler Ustad Vilayat Khan, seine Schwestern sind berühmte Sufi-Sängerinnen. Als Sitarspieler spielt er im Gayaki-ang-Stil, dessen Ziel die Imitation der menschlichen Stimme ist.
Dass er zur Sitar zusätzlich singt, setzt äußerste Kunstfertigkeit voraus: „Das ist wie zwei Sprachen gleichzeitig sprechen“, meint er. Doch die Konzentrationsleistung bliebe ein bloßes Kunststück, wenn ihr nicht jene meditative, in mystische Selbsterfahrung gründende innere Schau zu Grunde liegen würde, die so charakteristisch für den Weg der Sufis ist.
Shujaat Khans Weg  hat Grammy-Nominierungen, Auszeichnungen und Auftritte in der ganzen Welt, von der Carnegie-Hall in New York bis hin zur Uno in Genf.



Legendary Sitar-Virtuoso SHUJAAT HUSSAIN KHAN - his fusion album GHAZAL – THE RAIN with Iranian master musician Kayhan Kalhor received a Grammy nomination for Best World Music album in 2003 - is performing one of his very rare Austria concerts!
New Delhi-based Shujaat Khan, son of Ustad Vilayat Khan, is today considered the world’s finest Sitar player. His family invented the
GAYAKI-style of Indian music in which the instrumentalist recreates the human voice with his instrument with all nuances and colors. Apart from that Shujaat Khan is the only Sitar master worldwide who plays Sitar and sings simultaneously. It is now easy at all, like "speaking two languages at the same time" as Shujaat Khan describes it.
His vocal renderings of the lyrics of great Sufis and poets like Amir Chosrau (1253-1325), Kabir (1440 – 1518) and Bulleh Shah  (1680–1757) are legendary. Shujaat Khan has released more than 100 albums and received all major Indian music awards.

 

NIHAR MEHTA was born in one of the most prominent and respected families of philosophers and musicians of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. He started learning Tabla & Indian classical music at Saptak school of music in Ahmedabad under his uncle Nandan Mehta and Pt Puran Maharaj. His Father Mr Murari Mehta played Pakhawaj, an ancient percussion and learnt from a great guru Shri Sadashivrao Luttade from a very early age. His Uncle Shri Nandan Mehta is a very prominent tabla player and organizer of THE SAPTAK FESTIVAL, India's biggest and most important Music Festival for the past 27 years.
Nihar Mehta is a Tabla artist par excellence and has accompanied India's premier musical masters like Shujaat Khan, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt or Shahid Parvez.
Since 2004 Nihar is happily married and living in Villefranche sur mer, South of France. From there he is promoting Indian classical music, art & culture in France & Italy through the Association Saptak India of which he is the Founder-President.
