Son and student of the legendary Sarode Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, Alam has been touching the hearts of audiences worldwide for the past 15 years. Since his initial training into the Maihar Seni Gharana at the age of seven, Alam was blessed to learn and live in the traditional style of Guru and student. Ali Akbar Khan’s careful crafting and guidance is shows in each note as well as in Alam’s imaginative way of expressing the ancient ragas passed down from the courts of Emperor Akbar by Mian Tansen in the 16th century.
Alam was the personal assistant to his father during his final years of life, helping him in teaching at the Ali Akbar College of Music in San Rafael, California—a mecca for students and lovers of Indian classical music. Following his father’s wishes, Alam is now the teacher of advanced instrumental and vocal classes at the College and has dedicated his life to preserving, performing, and teaching this music to the world.
