A conversation with one of the premier sitar players of Hindustani classical music and a classical Tabla player is certain to be a revealing experience, if not outright awe-inspiring. Belonging to one of the oldest legacies of sitar playing in India, Ustad Shahid Parvez spoke unhurriedly, gradually unfolding the diverse gamut of his musical experiences. With him sat his fellow artist and companion, one of the most talented Tabla players of today, Pt. Hindole Majumdar. As the musicians sat talking in a room with several other keen learners, it was not difficult to see the pure affection they shared between themselves.
