DD Bharati to mark 70th birthday of Ustad Amjad Ali Khan

NEW DELHI: A special interview with renowned maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan will be telecast by DD Bharati on 10 October to mark the seventieth birth of the sarod exponent.


The interview, Amjad Ke Ayaam: Ustad Amjad Ali Khan se Sakshatkaar, will be telecast at 6 pm and repeat telecast next day at 10 am.


Singer Vidya Shah will conduct the interview, which takes the viewer to a new dimension of Ustad Amjad Ali Khan.


Khan was born to the illustrious Bangash lineage rooted in the Senia Bangash School of music. Khan was six years old when he gave his first recital of sarod. It was the beginning of yet another glorious chapter in the history of Indian classical music. Taught by his father Haafiz Ali Khan, he now shoulders the sixth generation of inheritance in this legendary lineage.


Through him, the world saw sarod being given a new and yet timeless interpretation. Khan is one of the few maestros who consider their audience to be the soul of their motivation.


As he once said, “There is no essential difference between classical and popular music. Music is music. I want to communicate with the listener who finds Indian classical music remote.”


In his case, the term 'beauty of the Ragas' acquires a special meaning as he has to his credit the distinction of having created many new Ragas. It is love for music and his belief in his music that has enabled him to interpret traditional notions of music in a new refreshing way, reiterating the challenge of innovation and yet respecting the timelessness of tradition.
