Nishat Khan

by jamesendeacott

I meant to post this a while ago. I had the pleasure and privilege of seeing Nishat Khan about 2 weeks ago when he played in front of about 20 of us for half an hour one lunchtime a few days before his performance at the Royal Albert Hall as part of this years proms. It really was an education to see someone play the sitar that close…not only play it but slay it. He told us that he’s the 8th generation of his family to play the Sitar…he lives and breathes it…

This clip off youtube shows you a some of his skills but to be there in the room was something else…and such a humble man – such a beautiful man….enjoy this clip…check out more and see him live if you get the chance…it really is a treat…the picture is one i took….
