With an eye to revive the glory of Indian Classical music, Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan has accepted Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s offer to set up a modern music academy in Punjab.

The project is expected to come up either at Mohali or Mullanpur in Mohali district.

At the launch of the Gurbani album, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal felicitated both Harbhajan Singh and Amjad Ali Khan for their unique creation.

“This collection of shabads from the Gurbani Album would prove to be a ‘food for soul’ for tormented minds of millions of people in the world,” said Badal.

The Punjab state-head said that he was really impressed with Khan’s contribution in the field of music and he wished that the new school would be an ideal place for musical aspirants.

The Chief Minister also assured Khan of all necessary assistance and asked him to file a report on this project.

Khan, on his part, said that he was really passionate about starting the music academy in Punjab and that the government had already offered him a suitable land for the project.

“It is one of my cherished desire to build a music academy in my own soil. And I will work hard to promote Indian classical music in every nook and corner of the country”, said Khan.
