      Irfan Khan Quartet



      Ustad Irfan Khan (Sarod)

      Matyas Wolter (Surbahar & Sitar)

      Markus Schlaffke (Afghan Rubab)

      Pandit Sanju Sahai (Tabla)


      Ustad Irfan Khan is the khalifa (head) of the ancient Lucknow Shajahanpur Gharana (Traditional School) of instrumental music and is one of the last instrumentalists of the subcontinent with a vast repertoire of historic compositions and a detailed insight into Raga grammar.


      His ancestors were rubab players and came to India as martial musicians from Afghanistan in the 17th century. In Lucknow they mixed with the court musicians and modified the rubab into what would become the sarod.


      The Ustad plays in the old instrumental style and strictly adheres to traditional Raga interpretation without gimmicks. Matyas Wolter and Markus Schlaffke are his students. Pandit Sanju Sahai is on tabla.
