MP govt ignoring our family, laments sarod maestro Amjad

Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan has alleged that the Madhya Pradesh cultural department has been ignoring his family and has not paid any tribute to his father, the late Ustad Haafiz Ali 
Khan, whose 42nd death anniversary is being observed on Sunday.

“On Sunday is the 42nd death anniversary of my pita Guru Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan Saheb. In these 42 years, Madhya Pradesh’s cultural department has not offered any tribute or homage to the legendary sarod guru of Gwalior. “Our family is ignored and boycotted by Madhya Pradesh’s cultural department,” 69-year-old Khan told PTI. He rued that though he and his sons have been invited to play at prestigious events, including at the recent Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at Oslo, we have “never been invited by the state cultural department to perform even in my hometown Gwalior for Tansen Music Festival.”
