The legendary Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan considers the audience to be his soul of his motivation. It is his love for music and his belief in his music that has enabled him to interpret traditional notions of music for a new refreshing way, reiterating the challenge of innovation and yet respecting the timelessness of tradition.
A young talent of the seventh generation in an unbroken chain of the Senia Bangash School, Amaan Ali Khan, the elder son of Amjad Ali Khan, was initiated into the fine art of Sarod playing at a very tender age and began his public performances as early as eight. Accompanying his father to various music festivals in India and abroad, Amaan has carved out a niche for himself. His precision in tunefulness and his bold and resonant strokes are all pointers to importance of tradition and continuity in Indian classical music.
The younger son and disciple of Amjad Ali Khan, Ayaan Ali Khan stepped into the world of music and the Sarod with confidence, clarity, consistency and technical mastery that he learnt at his father's knee. After giving his solo debut at eight, Ayaan has been performing concerts worldwide ever since. He has given many solo performances and also assisted his illustrious father at concerts all over the world.
