Biography

The youngest son of sarod player Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan, Amjad Ali Khan has continued to expand on his father’s legacy. Performing being a soloist and in cooperation using the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Charlie Byrd, Igor Frolav, Glenda Simpson, and Barry Mason, Khan has taken a global watch towards the sarod, a 25-stringed, violin-like, Indian device. AS THE Gulf Weekly stated, “(Khan) is within a course by himself, delivered with tempo in his spirit and fingertips,” The Lincoln Journal Superstar wrote, “(Khan is certainly) well-known for his elegant design and technique. Following a lifetime of focus on the device, he provides breathed a fresh life to a historical type.” In overview of a concert by Khan, THE BRAND NEW York Moments proclaimed, “(Khan) casts some sort of appeal on viewers, sending out ripples of pleasure.” Tracing his family’s root base to Mian Tansen, a 16th-century musician within the court from the Emperor Khan, Khan started playing the sarod at age ten. Along with his dad as his master, under the tight discipline of Master Shisya Parampara, he advanced quickly. Performing his initial concert at age 12, he was a nationally known superstar in India within 3 years. Khan’s wife, Subhalakshmi, a well-known Indian traditional dancer, retired from executing following their relationship. Furthermore to documenting many award-winning albums, including Raga Bhairav, which positioned among the very best 50 traditional albums of 1995 by BBC Mag, Khan continues to be featured in a number of documentary videos like the Canadian-produced Amjat Ali Khan in 1971, and Live Concert In Tokyo in 1989.
