Amjad Ali Khan is one of the undisputed masters of the music world. Since giving his first performance at the age of six, he has played for audiences worldwide, bringing a new and yet timeless interpretation to the repertoire, whilst being widely credited with reinventing the technique of playing the sarod.

Over the course of a distinguished career spanning more than six decades, Amjad Ali Khan has won numerous accolades including a Grammy nomination, the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum, UNICEF’s National Ambassadorship and the Fukuoka Cultural grand prize.

Forming a trio with him tonight are his sons, Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash. Along with their father they are Gold Medal Winners at the Global Music Awards for their outstanding contribution to the global music industry and excellence in the classical music sphere. This honour was bestowed on the trailblazing trio in recognition of their Peace Worshipers album which was released in July 2017 by Affetto Records.

The sarod like the guitar belongs to a common family of stringed musical instruments. The trio strive to preserve the essence of its traditions and bring their own unique artistic journeys (which have seen them collaborate with The Allman Brothers and Evelyn Glennie) to their performances.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
