Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash
Reincarnation (Music Today)
Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash are the sons of sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, and are prolific artistes in their own right. They play classical as well as fusion styles. They perform individually, as duo and many times accompanying their father.
The family also has an informative site at www.sarod.com. The nine tracks on this album showcase their prowess on a range of styles and moods. Our picks include Sacred Truth, White Lights, and Lonely Sprit. We also recommend their album Truth with the magnificent track, The Blessing.
