“It was like watching an Indian classical answer to Eric Clapton . . . it was easy to see why great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock." The Guardian, London
Amjad Ali Khan is the world’s foremost sarod player. A true maestro of this difficult but exquisite 19-string instrument, he is the sixth generation of a remarkable and unbroken lineage of master sarod players that traces its roots back to a seventeenth century Afghani horse-trader. He is internationally admired for his unique hypnotic style, and for his inventiveness in interpreting traditional notions of classical Indian music. A former child prodigy, Amjad Ali Khan is an international celebrity whose sublime music regularly reverberates through Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall and the Kennedy Centre.
