What to expect

Ustad Nishat Khan's classical concerts are in the pure Hindustani mould, a combined package of surprises and set trends. "I never know which raga I am going to play, except that it will be a raga of that time, an evening and a night raga," he explains.

He will be accompanied on the tabla by Sabir Khan. Nishat's penchant for experimentation within the framework of classicism has led him to plan part of his concert in Chennai with a mridangist, Trichur Mohan.
