Ayaan Ali Bangash grew up learning the intricacies of the sarod – the four-stringed lute of classical Indian music. He is the younger son of sarod master Amjad Ali Bangash (Amjad Ali Khan) and the seventh generation of a musical lineage known as the Senia Bangash School. Since making his solo debut when he was just eight years old, Ali Bangash has been performing throughout the world both with his father and on his own, offering him opportunities to experiment with collaborations that bring the sarod into harmony with other cultural traditions and musical genres. For this Lotus performance, Ali Bangash will be joined by Anubrata Chatterjee on tabla.
Ayaan Ali Bangash’s performance at Lotus is made possible through an Indiana University artist residency at the Jacobs School of Music, supported by the Office of the Provost at Indiana University, the IU Dhar India Studies Program, and the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs.
