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.
