Joined by Khan's young daughter dancing during the finale, they offered the fastest-paced chant containing the word "om" I've ever heard. Khan then stepped away from a little organ to lead the orchestra into a full crescendo.
After that raucous display, it didn't seem fair of Khan to leave his student tambura player to an uncomfortable solo encore. But Khan, the consummate teacher and his students' biggest fan, reappeared to cheer her on.
And judging by little Ms. Khan's performance throughout the evening, onstage, in the aisles, and at stage left, it would seem there is yet another generation of Khans being groomed to rock the West, Eastern style.
