Zila Khan is the daughter of Ustad Vilayat Khan the legendary sitarist and is his formal disciple. She was named by her father on the raag Zila Kaafi of Amir Khusrau.
Coming from a lineage of seven generations of legendary musicians and being the daughter of sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan, it might have been easy for Ustad Maa Zila Khan to get entrenched in the family’s long-held traditions of music. She chose however to find her own voice, and that process of self-discovery has today earned her the title.
