Amjad Ali Khan is the undisputed master of the

sarod, and one of India’s most celebrated

classical musicians. His ancestors developed

and shaped the beautiful 19 stringed

instrument, and his richly talented sons Amaan

and Ayaan Ali Bangash are the seventh

generation of the family to play it.

In this rare concert, the first family of the sarod comes together with three-time Grammy

Award-winning classical guitarist Sharon Isbin. Hailed as “the pre-eminent guitarist of our

time”, Isbin has performed as a soloist with over 200 orchestras and is the Director of the

guitar department at the prestigious Juilliard School (a department she created in 1989).

Isbin and the Khans bring together two worlds that are often held to be radically different.

They preserve the essence of both traditions, creating ways for them to flow into each other

without artistic compromise. Presenting a range of music, from Spanish work for guitar, to

ragas and folk tunes these outstanding musicians make an eloquent and impassioned call

for harmony – in music, in religions, in cultures, and in the world.

Each of these artists could command a concert hall in their own right. They come together

for this special concert, presented in North America for the very first time at Indian Summer
