Amjad Ali Khan is one of the greatest exponents of the sarod. Despite being relatively young, he has been able to establish himself among the top in the musical universe. He learnt the sarod from his father Hafiz Ali Khan.

He was born in 1945 .He comes from a family of muscians. His great-grand father, Gulam Ali Khan, was a court musician at Gwalior and is credited with modifying the difficult rabab into the sarod. His grandfather Nannhe Khan was also a court musician in Gwalior. Amjad Ali Khan studied under his father Hafiz Ali Khan of Gwalior. By the age of ten he was holding public performances and matured into a recognized talent by 15.Amjad Ali Khan has contributed immensly towards making the sarod popular as a solo instrument in the western world. He made many changes to the conventional style and structure of the sarod. The sarod, as designed and constructed earlier, could not convey the subtle shades of classical music. It tended to distort the tonal facets emphasising more on staccato than legato features. Nor could it produce the fast tans and gamakas. He researched these problems and made changes in the design of the instrument and gauze of the strings used. He also introduced the gayaki in the sarod, which has added new dimensions to performances on this instrument. He plays with his nails to produce precise, clear and microtonal sounds and with the fleshy part of his fingers which produces a flat sound known as rui dhunna, which refers to the sound made when fluffing and cleaning cotton wool by hand.

He takes keen interest in creating and spreading music for children. In the process of teaching music to his two sons, he has composed special songs for them and for children all over the country. His message is to spread love and affection among people. He has also composed a special ¦Birthday Songª for children. He has composed new ragas like Amiri Todi, HaripriyaKannada, Jawahar Manjari and Shivanjali for special occasions.He has founded the Hafiz Ali Khan Memorial Society to commemorate his father. It presents annual awards to outstanding musicians in recognition of their services to classical music.He has also trained some eminent sarod players like Gurdev Singh.

Amjad Ali Khan has the distinction of being the first north Indian artist to have performed in honour of Tyagaraja at the saint-musicianªs Thiruvaiyar shrine. He was honoured with the Sangeet Natak Academy Award in 1989.
