AACM Presents "The Works"

“The Works” of Maestro Ali Akbar Khan will be a monthly gathering for musicians of all styles and levels to come together and play the brilliant and unique works/compositions of the legendary Maestro Ali Akbar Khan.

“The Works” is open to all who wish to participate on any type of instrument. Notation will be provided at each gathering in the traditional Indian format called “Sargam.”

Western notation will be transcribed and offered whenever available. All instruments should be tuned and played in the key of “C”. Instrumentalists are welcome to transpose as well. Vocalists are also welcome to participate, but will have to adapt their singing to the instrumental repertoire.

Ultimately the purpose of these gatherings is to establish a body of AAK’s compositional works that can be referenced, known, and played by all musicians.

This will also give past, present, and future members of the AACM community a chance to play the maestro’s music together as they did before his passing in 2009.

The composition we will be starting with is:
-Kaushi Kanra from 2004


Please RSVP with your name and instrument type by email before the first gathering on Friday, October 12th.

This event is free and open to the public.  Walk-ins will not be turned away.

Please email or call with any questions.


Free admission -- Please RSVP by email with your name and instrument type.
