“Amjad Ali Khan may be a master of the sarod rather than the guitar,but once he had built up to the crescendo of his solo set – improvising furiously around the melody line with repeated, rapid-fire playing and then letting his equally frantic tabla player take over – it was easy to see why great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock.” —The Guardian
“Widely considered to be the greatest sarodist active today, Khan showed immense versatility as well as subtlety.” —_Washington Post _
He was all of six years old, when Amjad Ali Khan gave his first recital of Sarod. It was the beginning of yet another glorious chapter in the history of Indian classical music. Taught by his father and guru, the great Haafiz Ali Khan of Gwalior, Amjad Ali Khan was born to the illustrious Bangash lineage rooted in the Senia Bangash School of music. Today he shoulders the sixth generation inheritance of this legendary lineage. After his debut, the career graph of this musical legend took the speed of light, and on its way the Indian classical music scene was witness to regular and scintillating bursts of Raga supernovas. His two sons, Amaan Ali Phan and Ayaan Ali Khan, each a gifted musician in his own right, will join him in this performance.
