India’s celebrated first family of the sarod — Amjad Ali Khan, and Amaan and Ayaan Ali Bangash, are scheduled to play with multiple Grammy Award winner Sharon Isbin, recently recognized as the 2020 Instrumentalist of the Year by Musical America July 8, 2021.

The live musical event will take place at the Caramoor’s Venetian Theater in Katonah, N.Y. This will be their North American concert debut.

Their Strings for Peace program will feature works from their best-selling world premiere recording, Strings for Peace (ZM 202004), an album steeped in the tradition of ragas and talas of North Indian classical music along with a Spanish work for solo guitar, according to a press release.


The program makes an appeal for harmony — in music, in religion, in culture and the world.

Isbin has been the soloist with nearly 200 orchestras. Recent highlights include a 21-city Guitar Passions tour with jazz greats Stanley Jordan and Romero Lubambo, performances with the Detroit Symphony, Montreal Symphony and National Symphony, as well as sold-out concerts at the Kennedy Center, Kimmel Center, and Carnegie Hall. Her most recent Carnegie Hall appearances included collaborations with Sting, Katy Perry and Jerry Seinfeld, and in recital with Isabel Leonard.

Tickets are available at Caramoor.org
