Ustad Shafaat Khan Bridges the East & West
World renowned virtuoso Ustad Shafaat Khan brings his “East Meets West” concert to Greater Nippertown this weekend for a pair of performances.
Ustad Shafaat Khan – son of Ustad Imrat Kan and nephew of Ustad Vilayat Kahn – has performed at concert halls and festivals all over the world, and several of his CDs have been produced by Dr. Deepak Chopra. He is a multi-talented musician who performs on the sitar, surbahar and tabla.
The first half of “East Meets West” is devoted to classical Indian music (solo tabla, sitar and vocals) from the 16th century to the present. In the second half, maestro Khan will be joined by Ruby Ostrow (keyboards, vocals) and Coco Bastien (tabla) to perform a fusion of Eastern and Western music.
