Khandan is a richly textured documentary about Shujaat Khan, the seventh in a line of the most important family of sitarists in the 20th century. Through Shujaat’s narration, musical demonstrations as well as concert footage, Khandan takes us inside the world of hereditary musicians where we get a unique insight into the musical household of Ustad Vilayat Khan during his training of Shujaat Khan; the many visits by other great artists and their musical evenings; musical descriptions of what each of Shujaat’s forefathers brought to the domain of sitar and how all of these factors manifest themselves in Shujaat’s music today.

The Story of a Musician actually tells three stories: the social aspects of Indian Music, the musical features of a particular stylistic school known as the Agra Gharana, and the major representative of this style, the late master, Ustad Yunus Husain Khan. The Agra Gharana is one of the oldest vocal styles of Indian classical music. The Story of a Musician shows the social and musical phenomena of this style through video footage, interviews, musical excerpts, photographs, and other illustrations. Ustad Yunus Husain Khan was the last major vocalist of this tradition.

Shujaat Khan is one of the prominent sitarists to dominate the concert stage today. On November 11, 1993, Shujaat Khan, accompanied by Akram Khan on tabla, performed at Meany Hall at the University of Washington as visiting artist in the division of Ethnomusicology there. That memorable evening is brought here to video form. Taken with three cameras and with the audio recorded digitally, the video covers the main part of Shujaat Khan’s rendition of Rag Jhinjhoti.
