“One of the 20th century’s greatest masters of the sarod.”
Songlines World Music Magazine (United Kingdom)

GRAMMY Award-nominated sarod (19-stringed instrument) master Amjad Ali Khan gave his first performance at the age of six.  He was born into the sixth generation of the illustrious lineage of the Senia-Bangash school of music, and is credited with reinventing the technique of playing the sarod, which means "melody" in Persian. His career has spanned more than six decades, with performances throughout the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Austria, Romania, Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, Norway, China, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. At Wesleyan, he will be joined by his sarod-playing sons Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash, along with tabla player Amit Kavthekar.

This event is part of the 43rd annual Navaratri Festival at Wesleyan.
