AMJAD ALI KHAN (From India)

Event Date: 
Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 7:30pm

In a career spanning 50 years, Amjad Ali Khan has single-handedly elevated the sarod to one of the most popular instruments in the Northern Indian tradition. Trained by his father, the legendary Haafiz Ali Khan, Amjad Ali Khan is the sixth in an uninterrupted lineage of music masters.

Joining him are his sons, Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan, who are already beloved as the next generation of masters on this ancient instrument. Two tabla virtuosi will add percussive richness to the ensemble sound.

“Amjad Ali Khan—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
