About Ayaan Ali Khan:
Ayaan Ali Khan represents the seventh generation of a musical lineage known as the Senia Bangash School. The younger son and disciple of the Sarod Titan Amjad Ali Khan, Ayaan stepped into the world of music and the Sarod, at a very early age, with confidence, clarity, consistency and technical mastery that he learnt on his father`s knee. Ayaan has been performing concerts in India and worldwide since he gave his solo debut at the age of eight. He has given many other solo performances and has also assisted his illustrious father at concerts, all over the world.
Over the years today, Ayaan has carved out a special niche for himself in the world of music. His approach, vision and versatility make him an icon for the youth in the music industry. His contribution in making the Sarod a cross-over instrument in a variety of genres has projected him as an artist of high repute. The Carnegie Hall Concert told The New York Times, ``Ayaan already shows some of his father`s authority..``
