Come and join us for our end of the year concert on Saturday Nov. 5th. The evening will start at 7:30pm with a solo performance by Alam Khan accompanied by Nilan Chaudhuri. This will be followed by the AACM ensemble featuring two pieces composed by Ali Akbar Khan: one in raga Kaushi Kanada and the other in raga Sohini, which will be played in an 8 1/2 beat rhythm cycle. The unusual format of 3 sarodes and 2 sitars lends itself to a dynamic, multi-layered arrangement of these pieces, including embellishment by Alam Khan.

US FILM PREMIERE: Play Like a Lion explores the deep musical lineage of the Khan family—a tradition in which the lines between father and teacher are blurred and the intervals between duty, love and music become a devotional song. Alam, a prodigious musician, taught at his father’s feet, is our guide for a rich, soulful journey into the legacy of the great maestro. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Cast: Ali Akbar Khan, Alam Khan, Carlos Santana, Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, Swapan Chaudhuri, Derek Trucks, John Handy, G.S.
