Amjad Ali Khan (sarod) with Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash (sarod)
Satyajit Talwalkar (tabla) & Aditya Kalyanpur (tabla)
Duration : Around 120 minutes
Sarod is a fretless plucked stringed instrument immediately recognisable by its large, skin-covered resonator and polished metal fingerboard. Having evolved from the Afghani rabab around 1830s, sarod is a relatively young instrument. Like the sitar, it’s older cousine, sarod too has a distinct repertoire that is independent of vocal music. Since the 20th century, the style associated with these two popular instruments has become the predominant style of the north Indian instrumental music. Notwithstanding the above, during the past few decades, some instrumentalists have attempted to incorporate in to their style, materials and idioms from vocal music, commonly referred as gayaki ang.
Amjad Ali Khan ranks among the most popular instrumentalists of our time. As a direct descendent of Ghulam Ali Khan, who is considered as an important figure in the early history of sarod, Amjad Ali Khan is hailed as the most orthodox among the traditional and the most progressive among the creative. The internationally acclaimed maestro has worked with some of the greatest artistes across the globe.
Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash; Amjad Ali’s two sons and disciples, have outstanding individual accomplishments, and represent the seventh generation of the Seniya Bangash music lineage.
In this recital the duo will take to the stage first, followed by the maestro’s recital including some traditional compositions. In the grand finale, the father and the sons will present a form of semi-classical composition known as ragamala (lit. garland of ragas).
