The Centennial Tribute to Maestro Ali Akbar Khan is a large family affair, and we encourage you to join with us in celebrating his life and his glorious music. Khansahib, as he is commonly referred to, was larger than life while remaining humble and accessible. These dualities may be one of the reasons students came to the Ali Akbar College of Music and never left. He was a true master musician. This was evident in his classes—taught over a forty-year period—as well as in his concerts and recordings. It is our great pleasure to offer this platform to you all to reminisce, rediscover, and celebrate the brilliance and humanity of Khansahib.
Please come back again and again, share this website with your friends and families, and enjoy! Over the next year we will be adding more tributes and events to revel in together. We want you to get to know the incomparable man we all love and admire, and we will do our best to keep him alive through these offerings.
With our warm regards!
The AACM Family
