Ustad Amjad Ali Khan
Ustad Amjad Ali Khan is the sixth generation Sarod player of the Bangash lineage which traces its roots to the ancient Senia Bangash School of music.

His love for the instrument and strong passion for music has enabled him to be recognized as one of the great Sarod Players in the country.

Ustad Amjad Ali Khan has contribute immensely in the field of classical music by popularizing the Sarod. He simplified the instrument by removing a few strings and the resonance gourd. He plays the Sarod with his finger nails instead of finger tips a difficult technique genius he has created many enchanting new ragas such as Shyman Shree, Kiran Ranjani, Haripriya Kanada and several more.
