Sitar maestro Nishat Khan is to give two concerts at this year's Aldeburgh Festival, both offering what promise to be rather unique listening experiences.
On 15 June he is joined by the St Ephraim Male Choir from Budapest, for a performance of his 'Meeting of Angels'. It's a full-evening union of ancient plainchant and sitar improvisation that promises to explore the beautiful acoustic and architectural properties of Blythburgh Church.
And on 17 June, Khan will give three solo concerts throughout the day in the beautiful space of Orford Church. Starting at 8am and concluding at 10.30pm, his raags will explore and respond to the day and the night, and to the light and the atmosphere of that unique part of East Anglia.
