A Melodious Evening of Unforgettable Sufi and Sitar presents a unique blending of devotional vocal music inspired by poets Rumi, Hafiz, Bulleh Shah, Amir Khusrow, and Khwaja Ghulam Farid, with captivating sitar melodies. The performance features one of the greatest North Indian classical musicians of his generation, the masterful Shujaat Husain Khan.
