International Sitar Festival 2019

Seven Arts, Leeds, LS7 3PD
Sat 9th March 2019

South Asian Arts-uk and Sitar Music Society present a month-long celebration and exploration of the artistry of sitar through workshops, performances and talks across the UK in commemoration of legendary maestro, Ustad Vilayat Khan Sahib.

A concert and two workshops will take place in Leeds. 

Serenaded by Sitar

Representing the eighth generational link in an unbroken chain of musical talent, Shakir Khan will showcase the art of sitar in this intimate evening of playing. Shakir stands out for his exquisite sense of sur (melody) and laya (rhythm) and is a shining star of his generation.
