Zohaib Hassan

Zohaib Hassan Khan (b.1987) is a sarangi-player who associates himself with the Amritsari gharana. He learnt how to play the sarangi from his uncle, Ustad Bakhtawar Hussain Khan Sahib, as his whole family played the sarangi. His ancestors included the noted Ustad Hussain Bakhsh Khan Sahib, Ustad Peeru Khan Sahib, Ustad Nathu Khan Sahib and Ustad Abdul Mir Khan Sahib. In 2003-2005, he started to play the sarangi while doing his matriculation, but he could not pursue higher education due to financial constraints. He soon began to play the sarangi professionally, and started to play for Radio Pakistan in 2008. He has worked with many Pakistani music directors and musicians since then, and is currently attempting to teach another generation of sarangi-players through the Lahore Sarangi School and a series of video tutorials
