PREVIEW FOR BANKING ON MELODY
He imparts a rare aesthetic experience to his audiences with his creative imagination, consummate artistry and an imposing stage presence. He has achieved immense popularity in India as well as abroad and has regaled equally connoisseurs and lay listeners of classical music. He is Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, one of the foremost Sarod players in India, and has carved a niche for himself in the Hall of Fame of Indian classical music. And, he is coming to Hyderabad.

As the ABN Amro Bank opens to many fanfares on the 10th, with its first branch here at Road # 1, Banjara Hills, they have requested the Ustad to grace the evening of the launch, with his mellifluous music and on-the-spot wit.

Ustad Amjad Ali Khan belongs to an illustrious family of musicians, of Ustad Nanne Khan and Ustad Murad Ali Khan. His father, Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan, had received training from the great Wazir Khan of Rampur. Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan, who was among the first few to receive the Padma Bhushan, gave intensive training to his sons, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and his two brothers.

The creative genius of Amjad Ali Khan found expression in several enchanting melodies composed by him. He had composed raga Priyadarshini and Kamalashree in memory of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Some of the other melodies composed by him are Shivanjali, Haripriya Kanada, Kiran Ranjani, Suhag Bhairav, Lalit Dhwani, Shyam Shri and Jawahar Manjari.

Amjad Ali Khan is the recipient of several awards (and honors), some of which are Sarod Samrat, UNESCO Award, Padmashree, Kala Ratna, Sangeet Natak Academy Award, Tansen Award and Padma Bhushan.

But, unfortunately, entry is restricted to select dignitaries and the employees of this new bank. Cruel, isn't it? Try to call ABN Amro to try your luck.
