SABIR KHAN, symbol of the sarangi

SABIR KHAN

Sabir Khan is the symbol of the sarangi, today, in India.

Since the age of 6, he has been trained under the guidance of his father, the legendary Ustad Sultan Khan and his grand-father Ustad Gulab Khan of the Sikar gharana style. Breathtaking, he has already collaborated in his early thirties, with the greatest artists: Zakir Hussain, Kumar Bose, Anindo Chatterjee, Ranjit Barot, Salim and Sulaiman Merchant (Womad 2014), Karsh Kale.

Sabir excels in musical improvisations with sustaining melodic and rhythmic skills framed by the raga form and interpreted in vibrant play by which he renders the “hundred colours” of the sarangi, the sublime and most demanding of instruments. Sabir has opened an exciting new phase for North Indian music and the Rajasthani folk compositions that he inherited from his forefathers. He is much appreciated on the international musical scene.
