It could be said that Imran has music in his blood. Literally.
Hailing from the Sikar Gharana, he is a ninth generation musician from a lineage of court musicians that have preserved Indian Classical music as a Family tradition.
Training from the age of 6 from his grandfather, the sarangi
player and vocalist late Ustad Gulab Khan, he continued his sitar training with his father, Ustad Niyaz Khan and his uncle Padma Bhushan Ustad Sultan Khan.
Years of training, performances and collaborations have led to a depth of sound in Imran’s sitar playing that, although loyal to the centuries-old tradition of Hindustani Classical music, he is able to compose a stunningly resonant contemporary style of sitar that compliments and enhances musical traditions from all parts of the world. Clarity of sound, deftness of stroke and pitch-perfect tonal qualities are the hallmark of his music.
