On the 30th April, Amjad Ali Khan makes a much anticipated return to the Southbank Centre, performing with his sons Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash.
Named as one of the 20th century’s greatest masters of the Sarod, Amjad Ali Khan has won numerous accolades over his six-decade career, including a Grammy nomination, the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum, UNICEF’s National Ambassadorship and the Fukuoka Cultural grand prize.
Previous solo and concerto dates in the UK include concerts at Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, Darbar Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, WOMAD and the BBC Proms with esteemed orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
It follows the group’s successful tour of Australia and New Zealand WOMAD Festivals, and a US tour of Amjad Ali Khan’s sarod concerto Samaagam with the New Jersey Symphony and Xian Zhang. In May 2019, Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash return to the UK to perform Soul Strings, a programme of crossover Western & Indian classical music with Jennifer Pike.
