Ustad Aashish Khan, Shiraz Ali Khan

A Sarod recital evening with Ustad Aashish Khan and his nephew Shiraz Ali Khan will be held today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Organised by BSA, the event will take place at 7pm.

Ustad Aashish Khan is an extraordinary musician who learnt for many years, especially the critical formative years from his grandfather Maihar doyen Baba Allauddin Khan, later also honed his skills from his father Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, who was his Guru bhai as well as his Guru. However, his music has always retained the imprint of his grandfather, with its beautiful sure confident strokes outlining the raga in aalap, the systematic build up to jor, jhala, lar lappet and other traditional sarod baaj, culminating in extensive Laya work during the gat portion.

He was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2006 in the Best World Music category for his album ‘Golden Strings of the Sarode’. He is also a recipient of the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award. Besides being a performer, composer, and conductor, he is also an adjunct professor of Indian classical music at the California Institute of the Arts, and the University of California at Santa Cruz, in the United States.

On the other hand, Shiraz Ali Khan is a sarod artiste from India. He trained under the guidance of his father Dhyanesh Khan, grandfather Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, uncle Ustad Aashish Khan, aunt Ameena Perera, and Pandit Shankar Ghosh.
