Shujaat Husain Khan is perhaps the greatest North Indian classical musician of his generation. He belongs to the Imdadkhani Gharana (tradition) of the sitar (lute) and is the seventh in the unbroken line from his family that has produced many musical masters. His style known as the gayaki ang, is imitative of the subleties of the human voice. Shujaat Husain Khan is the son and disciple of master sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. His musical pedigree continues back through his grandfather, Ustad Inayat Khan,his great-grandfather Ustad Imdad Khan and his great-great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan - all leading artist of their generation. At the age of three Shujaat began practicing on a specially made small sitar, and by the time he was six, the child prodigy started giving public performances.
