Imran Khan

It could be said that Imran has music in his blood. Literally. Hailing from the Sikar Gharana, he is a tenth generation musician from a lineage of court musicians that have preserved Indian Classical music as a family tradition. Training from the age of 6 from his grandfather, the sarangi player and vocalist late Ustad Gulab Khan, he continued his sitar training with his father, Ustad Niyaz Khan and his uncle Padma Bhushan Ustad Sultan Khan. Years of training, performances and collaborations have led to a depth of sound in Imran’s sitar playing that, although loyal to the centuries-old tradition of Hindustani Classical music, he is able to compose a stunningly resonant contemporary style of sitar that compliments and enhances musical traditions from all parts of the world. Clarity of sound, the deftness of stroke and pitch-perfect tonal qualities are the hallmark of his music.

Belonging to a family of traditional musicians in Jodhpur, Naim Khan began his training in Tabla under his father Ustad Nizamuddin Khan. He was professionally performing on stage from the age of 15, and since then he has performed for major venues and festivals in India and abroad. He is known for his rhythmic sense and clarity on the tabla. An 8th generation tabla player, he is taking forward the legacy of the Delhi Gharana.
