Classical music stalwart Ustad Imrat Khan, who dedicated his life to propagating the Sitar and the surbahar worldwide, has died in the US after a brief illness. He was 83. 


His son Nishat Khan said Imrat Khan breathed his last yesterday in a hospital in St Louis, his home for over two decades, after a stroke. He said the funeral will take place tomorrow. 


Imrat Khan famously turned down the Padma Shri last year saying the recognition had come too late and diminished his achievements. 



Imrat Khan toured the world with his music and performed at the Cannes Film Festival in 1970 for a Merchant-Ivory partnership. He was also a regular at various music festivals in India.
