Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan performs two ragas traditionally associated with the monsoon season. First a full alap in raga Miyan Ki Malhar, followed by compositions in raga Desh.

The Miyan Ki Malhar includes a rarely performed tar paran section where Fateh Singh Gangani accompanies on pakhawaj. The Desh includes solos and accompaniment from both Fateh Singh Gangani and tabla player Rashid Mustafa. The booklet for this DVD includes a full performance analysis by Dr. Neil Sorrell.

Amjad Ali Khan was born in Gwalior, the birthplace, and resting place, of the legendary Miyan Tansen, court musician to the Mughal Emperor Akbar in the late 16th century. Amjad Ali Khan is the youngest son of Hafiz Ali Khan, famous court musician of Gwalior, and represents the sixth generation of a family of musicians.
