Ustad Imrat Khan comes from a family of North Indian classical musicians: a number of his maternal and paternal forebears were instrumentalists and singers, and his great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan, developed the surbahar, sometimes referred to as the bass sitar. Imrat Khan plays both sitar and the surbahar, and his approach to the instruments is influenced by South Asian singing traditions. He is joined by his son, Shafaat Miadaad Khan, on tabla on one of the album’s two pieces, both of which are intended for evening performance. This album, which originally came out as an LP in early 1980s, is a welcome addition to any collection of Indian classical music.

Imrat Khan (born 17 November 1935 - died 22 November 2018) was an Indian sitar and surbahar player and composer. He was the younger brother of sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan. Aliases: G. Chandani. In Groups: Ustad Imrat Khan And His Sons.

Imrat Khan (17 November 1935 – 22 November 2018) was an Indian sitar and surbahar player and composer. Khan was born in Calcutta into a family of musicians tracing its pedigree back for several generations, to the court musicians of the Mughal rulers.

While he proves himself incredibly fluent and adept as a sitar player, Khan has a mastery of the surbahar, a similarly structured string instrument, although one which occupies a deeper tone and spans four octaves. Over the course of his career Khan found considerable international success, becoming the first Indian classical musician to perform at the Royal Albert Hall, in 1971.

The former is performed solo on the surbahar, a bass sitar invented by the artist's grandfather.
