Sarod Masters Amaan Ali Bangash, Ayaan Ali Bangash & Singer Karencitta’s Musical Ode To Mahatma Gandhi On Gandhi Jayanti
Sarod Masters Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash, sons of Padma Vibhushan Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, have teamed up with international vocal sensation Karencitta for their latest collaboration, ‘1Love’, to be released on October 2, i.e. on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
“The one man, who we owe a lot to unquestionably, is Mahatma Gandhi. A man far ahead of his time, a man with a vision, and a man spiritually uplifted. From the Satyagraha Movement to the Non-Violence Movement, we discovered who we are from his voice and vision. Whenever I am asked, within India or abroad, what Gandhi means to me, I am filled with joy and pride,’’ expresses Amaan Ali Bangash.
“Gandhi’s enlightened patriotism and nationalism are what India and the world greatly need today. To recall and wholeheartedly adopt, they are to rid themselves of the evils of communal massacres and terrorism of various brands which plague them in various parts at present. We all need to make our respective contributions in this as Gandhi had insisted each of us must be the change we wish to see in this world”, imparts Ayaan Ali Bangash, “therefore, let us all work together to recreate, and be soulfully motivated by his enthralling symphony of truth, love, non-violence and peace.”
“World peace has always been my main advocacy. Hence this collaboration.” adds Karencitta.
Amaan and Ayaan represent the seventh generation of the Senia Bangash School. Their father, Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan shoulders the sixth generation of inheritance in this legendary lineage. Karencitta first rose to popularity with her hit song ‘Cebuana’ which reached over one million views in twenty four hours and became the number one most viral music on Spotify. Based in Los Angeles, Karencitta first joined a talent search when she was only four years old. She stayed in the entertainment business since then. A collaboration of the two, therefore, is something to really look forward to. Touché!
‘1Love’ releases on October 2 across the globe on digital platforms including YouTube.
