He loves wearing jeans and jackets, he loves listening to Elvis Presley. Yet he is the new face of Indian classical music.

Amaan Ali Bangash , son of Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan , does not fit in to the stereotype of an Indian classical musician. He rather presents a wonderful blend of Indian tradition and modern urban culture.




Amaan, who started public performances at the age of eight, considers his father to be his idol.

"He is my idol, mentor, guide and teacher, " he says.

Recently after performing in a five-day long festival dedicated to Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, he said, "It was an honour to play for him."

He is also aware of his responsibilities being the son of a Sarod legend.

"More than anybody else, my parents are important and dear to me. Therefore, being the elder son, it was my responsibility to carry forward the legacy of my father," he says.

"There was a bit of pressure on me initially. But after all these years, I am sure my parents would not at least be ashamed of me," says the modest Amaan.

Accolades and recognitions have also come his way at a very young age. In 2002, he was honoured with the 'Provogue society's young achiever award for performing arts.' Amaan has already performed in various international festivals in Singapore, United States, Britain and Australia.
