Ustad Irfan Muhammad Khan in Concert – The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music

Concert by Indian sarod player Ustad Irfan Muhammad Khan.

Irfan Muhammad Khan is the presiding chief of the Lucknow-Shahjahanpur Gharana, a lineage of sarod and sitar players traceable to the nineteenth-century royal court of Lucknow. Born in 1954 in Lucknow, Irfan Muhammad Khan learned sarod and sitar from his father Umar Khan (1916-1982), and from his uncle Ilyas Khan (1924-1989). From 1984 to 1988, and again from 2010 to 2013, Irfan Muhammad Khan lived in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he trained students and concertized extensively. He has also performed and taught in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Germany, and Japan. He lives and teaches in Calcutta, his home since early childhood.

This event is sponsored by The Mohindar Brar Sambhi Endowed Chair in Indian Music at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, The UCLA Center for India and South Asia (CISA), and The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Department of Ethnomusicology.
