By Purbayan Chatterjee (sitar) & Sabir Khan (sarangi)
In association with Mariwala Foundation
A duet (jugalbandi), based on either vocal or instrumental music, is an interesting feature of Indian art (classical) music performance. In the field of instrumental music, it often involves two different instruments that are complementary to each other on the basis of tuning as well as the repertoire.
Having won the President of India award at the age of 15 for being the best instrumentalist, today, Purbayan Chatterjee is an accomplished sitar player of international repute. In addition to solo classical concerts on the sitar, he has designed the DWO, which is a doppelganger of the traditional Indian sitar. Chatterjee is also an accomplished vocalist and has several international collaborative projects to his credit.
Sabir Khan has trained under the guidance of his grandfather, Gulab Khan, and his father, the legendary sarangi maestro Sultan Khan in the tradition of Sikar gharana. With outstanding control over the technique and idiom of sarangi, Khan has accompanied and collaborated with some of the great artistes, and today, has an international career that also represents the musical heritage of Rajasthan.
