Amjad Ali Khan, Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash: Strings for Peace

 

EVENT PRESENTING PARTNER: Nature’s Path Organic

Amjad Ali Khan is the undisputed master of the sarod, and one of India’s most celebrated classical musicians. His ancestors developed and shaped the beautiful nineteen stringed instrument, and his richly talented sons Amaan and Ayaan Ali Bangash are the seventh generation of the family to play it. Together their 57 strings can whisper, wail and thunder through centuries of musical repertoire, from classical compositions to folk songs and jazzy improvisations. The Khans perform regularly at the Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Kennedy Center, Mozart Hall and the Sydney Opera House. We are delighted to welcome them to the Chan Centre for this special concert at Indian Summer Festival.
