Cultural and musical traditions give life and purpose to the work they bring to the stage. By asking audiences to listen from the heart, sarod virtuosos Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash break through the troublesome polarities of continuity and change, tradition and innovation. In their sound we encounter technical assuredness bolstered by elegant lyricism and joy-filled dynamism. It is music forged from a unique artistic vision that rests upon a legacy seven generations deep and includes their revered father and grandfather, Maestro Amjad Ali Khan and Maestro Haafiz Ali Khan. Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash represent the 7th generation of a musical lineage, as sons and disciples of the sarod icon, Amjad Ali Khan. With him they have performed across the globe, including Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Smithsonian, and WOMAD festivals on many continents.
They have also collaborated with guitarist Derek Trucks, of the Allman Brothers Band, Chicago Philharmonic orchestra, Avignon symphony orchestra among others, and established themselves as a duo, carrying forward their musical legacy in sync with both tradition and contemporary times. They performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert 2014 in Oslo and recently won the Gold Medal at the Global Music Awards in LA for their new album Peace Worshippers. This year they perform with Moscow State Philharmonic Orchestra and Bronx Arts Ensemble.
“Both brothers have developed individual and distinctive musical voices at a very young age, and both look set to become central figures in North Indian classical music-worthy heirs to their father’s crown…” - Songlines World Music Magazine, UK 2003
