AMALGAM is a new album with the legendary Sarod maestro AMJAD ALI KHAN, his sons - the Sarod virtuosos Amaan & Ayaan Ali Bangash, and classical violinist Elmira Darvarova (first woman-concertmaster in the history of the Metropolitan Opera in New York). Featuring Amjad Ali Khan's masterpieces (based on traditional Indian Ragas) and Elmira Darvarova's arrangement of Bulgarian folk tunes, the AMALGAM album is a sequel to the previous cross-cultural collaboration between the artists ("Soul Strings"), which was released by Affetto in 2015 in North America and by Times Music in 2016 on the Indian subcontinent. AMALGAM goes even further than "Soul Strings" in exploring and bridging cultural identities, juxtapositions and musical DNA. The universally eternal beauty of music shines through, conquering all differences and bringing together a kaleidoscopic amalgamation, with the hope for tranquility and peace in the world.
Release Date: June 24, 2016 (Affetto Records, distributed by Naxos).
