Ustad Ikhlaq Hussain Khan is a sitar virtuoso from a centuries-long line of influential musicians of the Delhi Gharana, dating back to the creator of the sitar and tabla in the early 13th century. Ikhlaq Hussain was taught by his father Ustad Imdad Hussain and by Ravi Shankar. Ikhlaq plays in the Gayaki Ang style, reproducing the precise nuance of the human voice on the instrument, which is perhaps the most difficult form of playing the sitar. He has been captivating audiences worldwide with his highly artistic sensibilities and skillful playing since he was 14 years old.
