Zuheb Khan, born on 2nd March 1993, belongs to the famous Ajrada Gharana. He is the son of Ustad Naushad Ahmed Khan who is the fourth generation of musicians hailing from the gharana. Zuheb took his training from well known tabla player Ustad Akram Khan and his grand father Ustad Hashmat Ali Khan. Zuheb started his learning when he was only 3 years old. His first stage performance was at the tender age of five at the Russian embassy with his father. Zuheb has performed in various prestigious festivals all over in India. The Ajrara Gharana, categorized as playing in the kinar baj, was founded in the nineteenth century. Clarity of sound is the hallmark of the gharana’s playing style. The Ajrara gharana includes bol-patterns that are rather complicated with barabar and ari laya. Zuheb is arguably the finest contemporary performer of this style. Zuheb is appreciated both in the field of percussion and music throughout the world as an international phenomenon. A classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in his own country but also abroad. His playing is marked by his uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity. Founded in formidable knowledge and study, he has not let his genius rest there.
