Amjad Ali Khan is a sarod player, a variety of lute with 25 strings, used in classical Hindustani music (north India). Like many great musicians, he was born into a family where musical tradition, and more specifically the playing of the sarod, stretches back several generations. His ancestors are also responsible for inventing the instrument. His first guru was his father. The already long career of Amjad Ali Khan is punctuated with prestigious awards and international concerts and characterized by continuous experimentation and the search for improving his instrument. He has collaborated with numerous international artists, such as the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and Charlie Byrd, thus securing international acclaim for the hitherto unknown sarod. A living legend will perform at europalia.india.

Accompanied by: Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan, sarod, along with two tabla accompanists.
