Suhail Yusuf Khan (Hindi: सुहेल युसूफ खान; born 1988) is an Indian sarangi player and vocalist.[1][2] He is the grandson of Sarangi maestro Ustad Sabri Khan (1927-2015).[3]

In 2016, Khan released Everything Sacred, a collaborative folk album with James Yorkston and Jon Thorne under the name Yorkston/Thorne/Khan.[4] The trio went on to release two further albums, Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars (2017)[5] and Navarasa: Nine Emotions (2020).[6]

Khan is also a member of Welsh-Indian folk fusion group Khamira, who released their debut self-titled album in May 2017. The group includes Indian musicians and members of Welsh folk-jazz group Burum; both Khamira (Hindi) and Burum (Welsh) mean "yeast" in English.[7]
