Amjad Ali Khan was all of 6 years old when he gave his first recital on the sarod. It was the beginning of a glorious chapter in the history of Indian classical music. Taught by his father Haafiz Ali Khan, Amjad Ali Khan was born to the illustrious Bangash lineage rooted in the Senia Bangash school of music. He has been a regular performer at Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, and the Kennedy Center among others, and has received the UNESCO Award, Padma Vibhushan (the highest Indian civilian award), and UNICEF's National Ambassadorship. Amjad Ali Khan performs with his two sons, Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash, all three playing sarods, along with the traditional complement of tabla drums.
