Indian Jazz

The Ancient Future Indian Jazz program with Pandit Habib Khan features the sitar in unusual settings. While performing Indian jazz fusion in Lebanon with Ancient Future guitarist Matthew Montfort, Pandit Habib Khan was described as the "Jimi Hendrix of the sitar" by L'Orient le Jour, Beirut's French language newspaper. On the Planet Passion CD, Habib Khan adds an element of soulful longing. In concert, this ensemble shows both sides, from slow passion to energetic ecstasy.
