Born into a family of musicians hailing from the Amritsar gharana, Zohaib Hassan, 25, has established himself among the leading sarangi players in Pakistan. Zohaib's initial training came from his family elders. Later, he became a disciple of Ustad Ghulam Haider Khan of the Qasur gharana. He follows a strict regime of disciplined practice, and his concentration on musical perfection has allowed him the opportunity to perform for audiences in all of the major musical venues in Pakistan. Most sarangi players use only the index, middle, and ring finger, citing that the smallest finger is too weak to produce a note. Zohaib, who had Poliomyelitis as a child, incorporates all four fingers, giving his playing a greater fluidity and variety of note combinations. Zohaib was a 2013 VSA International Young Soloists Competition winner.
