Shujaat seems very honest and personable. Some great anecdotes here.

Thanks for the link! I really like Shujaat's playing and singing.
I got a great video of him performing Rag Jhinjhoti. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for posting the link! Shujaat Sahib is a very sweet guy and an incredibly mature player at a very young age. I've always had huge regard for him and the interview just increases that respect. It's so rare for musicians of his caliber to be so forthright and unconcerned with image.

Those are both great interviews as well. I would have to say Shahidji and Nikhilji are my two favorite sitar players.

I did find Shujaat's comments about Shahid needing to own up in public to the impact of Vilayat Khan's influence and teaching. I wonder if there is a tension between the cousins! That would be a shame.

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 23, 2004 02:07 p.m.


I attended a 3-day workshop with Shahid Parvez a couple of months ago and found him to be very kind and thoughtful. Does anyone know why Shujaat made this comment about Shahid? I haven't read or heard anything regarding this.

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 23, 2004 02:29 p.m.


As he said - there is always competition between the big guys. I think his interview is very telling. Despite his less than happy relationship with his father - he nontheless insists that Vilayat Khan's contribution to Shahid's mastery of the sitar be honored. It's a sign of maturity, humility and honesty to insist that credit be given where credit is due regardless of his own harsh treatment at his father's hands. Many people can't absorb how the parent (with best intentions) invoke tremendous unhappiness in a child in the name of "doing what's best" - until they are much further on in life. Shujaat Khan is a man with very clear vision.
That is of course my two rupees worth. BTW - if you get a chance - check out the CDs that he has done which he sings. It's really great stuff!

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 23, 2004 03:04 p.m.


So is it that Shahid gives all the credit to his father, rather than V.K. (again, I haven't read or heard any interviews with Shahid) or is it that he doesn't give credit to anyone for his mastery?

This is your own opinion. You don't speak for "everyone", my friend. And by the way, if only the "sitar" is meant to sing, why do I have three live recordings of your teacher "singing" before playing compositions? That is ridiculous to say that it "breaks the mood"... the very gharana your teacher belongs to bases almost every bandish on vocal compositions. If you don't believe me, ask Shahid ji.

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 24, 2004 03:04 p.m.


Sadly this harsh rivalry extends to much more than these two cousins in this great family, though I will not mention any names. In certain instances it is healthy for musicians to challenge each other and innovate but I cannot stand useless political hassles. I agree it should all be for the love and dispersal of masterful music but you yourself are taking away from the intention of the music by imposing your inappropriately negative opinion.

Unfortunately it is this kind of gossip crap talking that enhances tensions between musicians and music lovers. If you don't like his singing then don't listen to it. please do not speak for "everyone," if they gave a damn then they would post their opinion as well. If you truly love the music then promote it rather than bring it down.

Again, you are mistaken. It is most definitely NOT a "general opinion", but your own. If it were a general opinion then "Lajo Lajo" would not have outsold all of Shahid's recordings COMBINED. (Which it has). In fact, it has sold quite well in India and abroad... if you are arguing that there are thousands of tone-deaf people in India and abroad, that is another matter. As to the quality of Shujaat's singing - that is a matter of opinion. You are entitled to a different one, certainly. There will be many that disagree and agree. But please spell his name correctly... it is SHUJAAT.

I agree with Sad Ustad that the rivalry is pointless. I doubt if there really is one per se. Shujaat appears to acknowledge Shahid's virtuosity as a musician. It is only a small matter of acknowledging credit where it is due... that is left up to the artist's own integrity and conscience.

Kedar,

Its a shame to know the reason for hate. Afterall you should love or hate music based on its musical quality. Looks like some people aren't ready for innovation. If singers can sing while playing harmonium , why can't they do it with Sitar? I have tried it myself and it sounds way more prettier that harmonium and trust me - it is a lot more fun to do. Hope Shujaat keeps doing what his own inspiration tells him to do ....

Opinions are like assholes - everyone has one
and thinks it smells better than the other guy's.

Shujaat Khan's singing is much appreciated by
by the the creme-de-creme of the ICM world.
Hear him in concert and you will see the front
row seats are filled by the best players in the
business. They call out to him on stage and
make requests for specific songs. Hardly
the actions of people who don't want to hear
him sing. I expect that if Shahid-ji knew that
his student Kedar was posting such juvenile
rubbish, he would be most embarrassed.

Well of all things to seize upon in an incredibly information packed set of articles, the negative......so here's what I got out of the articles:
Kavita:
"You are one of the few artists who sing and play both, and have incorporated the �gayaki ang� and the �tantrakari ang� creating a unique style and universal appeal."
Ustad Shahid Parvez:
"I think to play an instrument from your soul, you have to learn to sing first, because music is expressed to the maximum through singing. I started with vocal music when I was three and till today I sing in my performances. I feel until you sing it will not transfer to your playing. More than even the technique and other things, you need to sing. You play an instrument with your hands but the sounds really emanate from your heart." Oooooh, little jewell there.... how about this one?:
"It is not enough to just take lessons and practice. The involvement should be so deep that your music and you become one. Often my mind is full of music even when I am asleep." . . . . Ouch, hard enough to get in a solid hour a day for most of us.
As for myself the idea of performers singing and playing at the same time what a neat way to express the human soul... I've heard Sangeeta sing with Harmonium and I can tell you it was great... When she sings her lessons from her vocal Guru while she's playing Sitar you immediately understand more how the instrument reflects the human voice. She really started me on the road to understanding Raga's through the vocal aspect and the affect on my playing has been invigorating.... Uncle Ken

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 25, 2004 11:50 p.m.


I can see both points of view. Singing and playing emanate from the same source and consequently they should jive. Nothing wrong with that. This type of demonstration is often powerful and informative. Or it can be lighthearted and playful. However, some voices are not, how shall I put it, 'as pleasing' to hear as the instrument they are also playing. Then it becomes a distraction; 'besura', "gayaki ang" or not. More so in a formal setting, or on a recording, than at a mehfil, in my opinion.
Thanks be to the Great One that vocal artists don't often attempt to accompany themselves on sitar!

What exactly do you mean by "creme-de-creme of the ICM world"?

Do you mean here (USofA) or in India or all over (worldwide)?
Successful hindustani artsists? as opposed to common/typical ones? Are you including the Carnatic world, as well here?

Dear AJ,
It's just an expression. If I was in a mood to be pedantic I could say that I was referring to top established artists that are internationally recognized as leading contributors to the classical genre, ie: Subhanker Bannerjee, Tejendra Majumdar, Vijay Kichlu, Raghunath Seth, Debashish Bhattacharya, T.V. Gopalkrishnan etc. These are just a few people I have personally seen at Khan Sahib's performances. I expect you may have heard of some of these names before. Seriously, the reality is that there may well be lots of folks out there that are superior in talent to all these celebrated names and have no recognition outside of their own livingroom. I was just referring to ones that are well known.
Peace

I chose this nickname to express a tongue in cheek lightheartedness - because sometimes I say things that are critical and I don't want anyone to take these things as having been said out of meaness. So many folks floating through this forum are too thin-skinned

Local creme/majority poll Feb 27, 2004 07:48 a.m.


Yesterday I asked the local creme de la creme over here about this problem with singing, and I also let the majority over here decide how to solve that issue. Here the results:
The creme (that's I & I, because nobody else cares) thinks, that both artists are allowed to sing and play sequentially and at the same time, if they like to do so. I've heard much worse singing. Despite the fact that voices have no taraf strings, the voice trditionally is considered the superior musical outlet, so I won't punish people for playing Sitars etc.; maybe because of stage fright(sp?) they need some wood to hide behind (remember that Ravi, being very little, sometimes completely got out of sight behind his lute).
The majority over here doesn't know anything about the conflict and the associated caste things; they think that Shujaat should do more drum n bass and Shahid should stick with Butoh dancing. I am not quite shure that this decision is really proper in terms of ICM rules (whoever sets them), but that's democrazy, so it should be respected.
Bad Ustad
Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 27, 2004 10:56 a.m.


That is what I like so much about this country. It is a democracy in the true sense of the word. India is still very hung up on tradition and sometimes tradition is just a code word for stagancy. There are so few new ideas coming out of there. Innovations all tend to be superficial and purile. Americans genuinely like to shake it up. So many good things come out of real experimenting. The CD with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Eddie Vedder was not one of them, but you can't always get it right on the first try.

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 29, 2004 05:34 a.m.


Wow!!!!!! way to make a broad, sweeping statement there. According to the expert creme de la creme authority here, there are "so few new ideas coming out of [india]... innovations tend to be superficial and purile..." give me a bloody break.

You are so full of yourself (in a very BAD, ignorant way) thinking you've seen every single indian sitarist young and old and that YOU have the balls to judge them as being superficial. Too bad more American's can't "shake up" those backward, stagnant indians, maybe we could teach them a thing or two about real musical creativity in music, right Bad Ustad? Your statement is retarded on so many levels, its quite hilarious actually if I bother to think about it!!

Seriously, maybe you should step down off of your conceited, self-proclaimed Ustad pedestal and make some meaningful statements, otherwise don't say anything. I don't come on here to read rubbish by self-aggrandizing wannabes, and I don't think I'm speaking for myself. Many of us are not experts by any means so there is no pretense, but this "Ustad" crap is just a bad joke. we are all eager to share our unique experiences and opinions but never will I pose as or chastise others as a self-appointed authority. If you don't know, don't make stuff up, and if your opinion is negative or inappropriate please keep it to yourself, there is no Net-nanny.

And don't try to tell me I'm too thin-skinned... you just need to regulate yourself and stop wasting so much space on this server.

It's just an opinion. Everybody is entitled to have one without some indignant type trying to run them out of town. If you have an intelligent opposing point of view, why not express it instead playing self-rightous Forum Furer. Nobody here is authorized to dictate what opinions are allowable. If I say the arts in India are largely stagnant - that's my opinion. Why don't you illustrate for us all some thrilling new innovative creation in the arts that has come out of India in the last 200 years? I'm sure we'd all like to know about it. The focus of my intent was not to belittle Indian culture - but rather that sometimes it takes an accident of new blood to create change. The interplay between Hindu and Muslim cultures is the spice that gives Indian music its flavor. The mix of different cultures in the USA can be said to be responsible for the vast number of vibrant musical styles that are native to the USA. It's the whole melting pot thing.

The"Bad" is right. Not necessarily in regard to his opinions, but that he has a right to voice them no matter how he chooses to phrase them. It is the nature of people everywhere to have differing opinions as well as colloquial methods of expression. What are annoying are those person�s opinions about other person�s opinions that have nothing original or constructive to add to the subject in question. What is truly "negative" in nature are opinions that would suppress someone else's opinions or all other opposing viewpoints.
So, if you don't want the subject of this thread to be diverted to the subject of Bad Ustads, then please, tell us something interesting, or challenge us with a novel viewpoint on the subject, and refrain from voicing your petty personality dislikes of the person with whom you disagree.

My impression was that BU was commenting on Kedar's assertion that sitar players shouldn't sing. I haven't been around so long - but the Indian music scene does seem to be very much constrained by the because of the way orthodoxy is so valued. Ritualistic adherence to outdated values isn't good for the growth of any art form.

if growing is proportional to the volume of people listening to it?... then yes perhaps it might not be growing as one should expect.( but come to india and you might be surprised).
if you mean musically ?.. then..what more growth can you want ?..i mean this is improvisation ..how can tradation come in the way?.....
if the rules are bend then its not indain classical anymore....
the basic most sprit of this music lies in the spritualism....

Re:A Very Candid Interview with Shujaat Husain Khan. Feb 29, 2004 10:00 p.m.


Perhaps the word "evolve" would serve better here.
I love Indian classical and listen to it all the time. I think for those who are players and those who are sharply focused in on this genre - the subtleties of improvisation within the standard forms (ragas) is enough to keep them engaged. Perhaps it's because I'm not classically trained, that I have noticed how frequently folks are initiated into the classical genre by hearing, recordings that really jump out and make people take notice, like the Ghazal CD by Shujaat Khan and the Persian player (I forget his name) Or a favorite of mine, Ravi Shankar's "Vision Of Peace" a double CD of jugalbhandis with a koto player and a shakuhachi player. It's true that Khan Sahib and Panditji did not create something totally unique out of thin air, but they did branch out. Recordings like these are pretty much always on labels run by Westerners. Indian classical labels do seem to shy away from this sort of thing. In the early years the sarangi was, as I understand it, very much integral to ghazal, but was later proscribed because many of the best players were known to have refined their art playing in bordellos. It was hundreds of years before the sarangi came to be considered a legitimate instrument for expressing classical music. I think given this example, you could say that what sometimes passes for a musical tradition, is essentially just cultural prejudice. The kind that needlessly marginalized sarangi players who with more mainstream acceptance, would have had much more opportunity to contibute to the classical tradition, and make it grow.
