Join us at T2F for a classical music performance featuring the exciting, young sitar prodigy, Shehroze Hussain.
Shehroze Hussain is the eldest son of sitar maestro Ustad Sajid Hussain of the Senia Gharana. Shehroze started learning sitar at the very early age of six and has performed at a range of private and public venues such as Sampurna, All Pakistan Music Conference, and Lahore Music Forum. He has appeared on television and has served as guest artist for Aga Khan University’s Humanities and Social Sciences lecture series and School of Leadership’s Young Leaders Conference in 2011.
Shehroze has co-taught a six-week elective at the Aga Khan University on the music of the subcontinent for two consecutive years. For the last three years he has been a star performer, alongside his father, in the classical ensemble, Tarz Group, led by Yousuf Kerai. Possessing an excellent grip on the sitar and achieving great technical agility with his voice, Shehroze brings a refreshing personality to the tradition of sitar players.
Shehroze Hussain will be accompanied by Yousuf Kerai on the tabla.
Seats are limited and will be available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. No reservations.
