Lessons from Sarangi: A Virtual Performance and Conversation with Suhail Yusuf Khan

October 22, 2020 - 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
  • Registration Required

Suhail Yusuf Khan is a Sarangi player, vocalist, composer, and Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Music at Wesleyan University. Khan is writing the first in-depth ethnomusicological study by a hereditary sarangi player. His ethnographic scholarship draws on personal experience as an eighth-generation musician belonging to a lineage of Hindustani musicians. He situates this musical tradition in a globalized context, to help new audiences connect with the riches of this repertoire.

All are invited to a live sarangi concert by Suhail Yusuf Khan, followed by a conversation. Yael Rice, assistant professor of art and the history of art and of Asian languages and civilizations, will introduce this event by presenting works of art from the Mead’s collection that feature the sarangi and speak to the rich history of the instrument.

This program is presented in collaboration with the Departments of Art and the History of Art, Architectural Studies, and Asian Languages and Civilizations and will take place via Zoom.
