Nishat Khan is an Indian sitar player who has collaborated with some of the world’s leading performers and composers such as Philip Glass, John McLaughlin, Paco Peña and Evelyn Glennie. The collaboration with Estonian vocal ensemble Vox Clamantis will be something special and unique.
Nishat Khan is one of India’s finest musicians and a virtuoso sitar player, transcending musical barriers with his provocative expression and spellbinding technical mastery. Nishat stands at the threshold of the future of sitar and Indian music with his uniquely invigorating and contemporary approach. Nishat draws on his own musical heritage that is the North Indian classical idiom as well as engages in other genres as diverse as Western classical music, jazz, Flamenco and Gregorian chant.
Ensemble Vox Clamantis comprises a diversity of musicians – singers, composers, instrumentalists, and conductors – who have a common interest in the Gregorian chant. Next to the Gregorian chant, considered to be the foundation of all European professional music culture, Vox Clamantis often performs early polyphony and contemporary music. Many Estonian composers, among them Arvo Pärt, Helena Tulve, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Tõnis Kaumann, and Sven Grünberg have written compositions for Vox Clamantis.
