Born into a family with ancestral claims to the invention of the instrument, Amjad Ali Khan is the master of the sarod, a deep-voiced cousin to the sitar with a bottomless sound. "Using nails rather than fingertips," says The Washington Post, "is just one of the complications of Khan's approach to the notoriously challenging Indo-Persian instrument." Yet he effortlessly coaxes out beautiful melodies, which have enchanted international audiences since the 1960s. *** Now North India's most popular musician brings his sons - rising sarodists Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan - for an evening of magnificent ragas, Indian folk tunes, and gracious improvisation, proving yet again that "great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock" (The Guardian). *** "the finest living exponent of the sarod" - The Guardian
