Kamal Sabri carries his family’s musical tradition forward to a seventh generation. He absorbed the rich Senia sarangi gharana from his father, esteemed Moradabad master Ustad Sabri Khan, and rigorous early training saw him gain respect for mature accompaniment slots with eminent Hindustani singers.
He has represented the sarangi in the ‘Art of the Bow’ Festival in Geneva, as well as recording for the BBC and working with varied musicians including Ustad Zakir Hussain and as saxophonist Jan Garbarek.
"I come from a traditional music family and I didn't want to do something which would degrade my caliber as a musician or degrade the lineage that I come from...But at the same time, I wanted to do something which would take my dignity up. In this album, I have introduced a funky way of playing the sarangi in a style which requires a lot of energy."
