The Raag Mantra Music Festival - Meet The Maestros seeks to bring the best of Indian classical music to iconic heritage venues across India.
Indian classical music is timeless, ethereal and steeped in history and legend. It is the embodiment of India’s cultural legacy and takes one back to durbar evenings in Mughal courts when musicians would serenade royalty and the aristocracy. The Raag Mantra Music Festival seeks to recreate the magic of those evenings by bringing stellar Indian classical musicians to venues synonymous with India’s heritage.
In 2018, the Raag Mantra Music Festival brings the biggest names in Hindustani classical music together for the performance of a lifetime. On the 9th of December, under Delhi’s architectural landmark - the Qutb Minar, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Rashid Khan and Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan will take the stage for a concert which has been twenty years in the making.
Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan is a classical sitar player and member of the illustrious Etawah gharana. He also claims roots in the Imdadkhani gharana which is credited with the development of the surbahar as well as structural changes to the sitar itself. He is Padma Shri and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee.
Ustad Rashid Khan is an Hindustani classical vocalist who practices the Rampur-Sahaswan gayaki, which is closely related to the Gwalior gharana. He has recorded film scores, performed on several albums and has worked with A.R. Rahman and Shankar Ehsan Loy. He is a Padma Shri and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee.
