The Sarod Ghar music museum occupies the beautiful ancestral home of the Bangash family, whose ancestors, originally Afghan horse-traders who settled in India, produced a dynasty of musical virtuosos, including Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan and his son Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. The museum traces Gwalior’s rich musical legacy, from Tansen, who performed in Mughal emperor Akbar’s court, to the invention by Gulam Ali Khan Bangash of the sarod, whose ethereal tones accompany you as you progress through the galleries.
