Enayat Khan—a prominent sitar and surbahar player—greatly influenced India's music landscape in the early 20th century. Born in the late 19th century, he hailed from a family of musicians and was a pivotal figure in the Imdadkhani Gharana. Settling in Calcutta, he made significant innovations to the sitar, expanding its reach to wider audiences. Collaborating with Rabindranath Tagore, he bridged classical music with mass appeal during a time of cultural and national resurgence. Despite his untimely passing, his legacy lived on through his sons, Vilayat Khan and Imrat Khan, who further enriched the world of classical music.
