The SPK Academy of Music in association with HarmoNYom proudly presents Sitar maestro Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan accompanied by the dazzling Shri Sukhwinder Singh Namdhari (Pinky) on tabla.

Together in concert for the first time in NYC!

The sublime sitar virtuosity of Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan meets the explosive tabla talent of Shri Sukhwinder Singh Namdhari (Pinky). When the lyrical genius of the sitar meets the combative prodigy of the tabla, the result is electric. The on-stage chemistry of the artists takes the performance art of Indian Classical music to new heights.
This evening of music is not to be missed.

Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan is one of the finest sitar players alive today. His dazzling virtuosity and innovative genius have earned him a legacy as a giant of the sitar. Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan learned his craft from his father, Ustad Aziz Khan, and enjoys an impeccable pedigree. He is a seventh generation heir to the sitar's first family, the Etawah Gharana. Ustadji's global reputation as an awe inspiring performer is complemented by another rare gift - his ability to spread his music as a dedicated and loving guru. Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan sums up his mastery of this most intricate art form with a profoundly simple philosophy: "Music is my life".

Sukhvinder Singh Naamdhari is one of the best tabla players from the Benaras Gharana and suitably emulates his Guru's style. He received his initial training in saath from Ustad Nihal Singh Ji, and went to Varanasi (Banaras) where for several years he received intensive training and guidance from none other than the legendary Pt. Kishen Maharaj, the best known and internationally acclaimed exponent of the Benaras Gharana of tabla playing. Sukhvinder is a shining star in the world of tabla accompaniment and tabla solo playing. He had performed with most of the leading artistes, such as Pt. Ravi Shankar, Ustad Vilayat Khan, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Ustad Shahid Parvez (Sitar), Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt. Rajan & Pt. Sajan Misra, Pt. Jasraj to name a few.
