Ustad Amjad Ali Khan

This is a brilliant documentary on the legendary sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, very beautifully made by Gulzar the legendary poet. This is produced by the Films Division of the Government of India. Sarod is a stringed instrument mainly played in the Hindustani Classical style of music. Ustad Amjad Ali Khan comes from an illustrious lineage of musicians going back to several generations of musicians, all one great after another. They came from Kabul and played the Rubab which is a modified version of Sarod. The music that comes out of sarod is very beautiful and melliflous and since it blends with the classical ragas, it makes for great listening. His father Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan was also a great musician.
