Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan Plays at The Cohoes Music Hall

Oct 2, 2019

Sunday, October 6th at 4pm | The Cohoes Music Hall

I had the luck of getting a few minutes to talk with one of the world's foremost sitar players. Shahid Parvez comes from a long line (7 generations!) of a family of world class sitar players.  He and I talk about how he got started with his grandfather at the very young age of 3 and 4. 

We talk about the training, about how playing sitar actually gets harder the longer you are at it.  We also talked about the fascinating concept that a sitarist about to play a concert waits until nearly the last moment to decide what to play - the ultimate in improvisation. 

Hope you can find time in your busy schedule to go see Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan at the Cohoes Music Hall on Sunday, October 6th.
