Sitar maestro Ikhlaq Hussain is an accomplished sitarist with musical roots in the renowned Delhi Gharana (school) of Hindustani classical music. Ikhlaq was trained by his father, Ustad Imdad Hussain, in Karachi, and later by the legendary Pandit Ravi Shankar in India. Ikhlaq’s deeply spiritual music is played in the “Gayaki” style, emulating the human voice and conveying the human soul’s yearning for the divine.
