3 of 11: Series of beautiful & exciting recordings of India's renowned Sarod maestro Wajahat Khan.
Ustad Wajahat Khan - Live: singing and playing his own compositions, these ones based on his gayeki-ang style of playing (vocal-style of his gharana):
1. Raag Gaoti - tarana, with Pandit Partha Mukherjee on tabla.
2. Raag Darbari Kanada - from a live broadcast on BBC World Service, with Ustad Sukhvinder Singh Namdhari (Pinky) on tabla.

Ustad Wajahat Khan is one of the most outstanding sarod maestro of India. Based in Kolkata and London, he has performed to great acclaim at prestigious venues and festivals in over 40 countries worldwide (including the Smithsonian Washington DC, Symphony Hall Berlin and Royal Albert Hall BBC Proms, London). He is also a celebrated composer, having written and performed concertos for symphony orchestras and award-winning quintets for string quartets, as well as pioneering world-music collaborations with Western classical, jazz, flamenco and opera, with leading international artists and ensembles (including London Sinfonietta, Halle Symphony Orchestra, Carducci Quartet and Scottish Opera.) Son and disciple of Ustad Imrat Khan and nephew of Ustad Vilayat Khan (legendary surbahar/sitar maestros of India), he belongs to one of the world's most celebrated musical families, which goes back 400 years to the courts of Emperor Akbar in the 16th century.

With revolutionary contributions to the styles and repertoire of the sarod, his distinctive style and virtuoso technique interweaves a wide spectrum of dhrupad, khayal and thumri (vocal) forms with authentic sarod baaj (repertoire), which has won him a worldwide following as one of the most accomplished Indian musicians of his generation, with many acclaimed recordings to his credit.
