Born into a highly illustrious family of traditional musicians of the Agra Gharana, Mehboob Nadeem is the grandson of the reputable Ustad Vilayat Hussain Khan (Pranpiya) and Gayan Samrat Ustad Azmat Hussain Khan (Dilrang).

Endowed with a rich melodious and sonorous voice that perfectly compliments his hypnotic sitar playing, Mehboob has come to be recognised as one of the best sitar players in the UK, widely respected for his gift. His performances are truly inspiring, and have enthralled audiences in India and across the world.

He will be accompanied by Gurdain Rayatt, one of the UK’s most exciting tabla players. Trained both in the UK and India, his performances range from traditional Indian classical music to cross-cultural and experimental music. Rayatt regularly performs with the world’s best Indian classical musicians, including Anoushka Shankar and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan.
