World Music Series offers classical Indian music concert
Experience the vibrant energy and deep serenity of Indian classical music when the School of Music and Dance’s World Music Series presents a concert by world-renowned Indian classical musician Ustad Shafaat Khan on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in Beall Concert Hall.
Ustad Shafaat Khan has performed at concert halls, music festivals, and universities throughout India, the United States, Europe, China, Russia, and Japan. He recently performed alongside Stevie Wonder at The Bonnaroo Festival—one of the largest music festivals in the United States. A number of Khan’s recordings have been produced by Deepak Chopra.
Khan’s musical heritage can be traced back to the 16th-century court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. He is the son of the legendary sitar and surbahar maestro Ustad Imrat Khan and nephew of the legendary Ustad Vilayat Khan. In tabla, he is the foremost disciple of the widely respected Ustad Ibrahim Khan.
Khan’s unique concert presentations include Indian classical/folk music on sitar, tabla, and voice; Sufi inspired compositions; and a multi-cultural fusion ranging from western classical, jazz, and rock, to pop, flamenco, and African rhythms.
The concert is cosponsored by OHC’s Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities. Tickets, $12 general admission, $8 students and seniors, are available at tickets.uoregon.edu or by calling (541) 346-4363.
