Strings for Peace is a fabulous set of four ragas composed by Indian sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan for American classical guitarist Sharon Isbin. The four beautiful, evocative pieces showcase the marvelous interplay between the sarod and the classical guitar.  The album features Sharon Isbin on classical guitar; Amjad Ali Khan on sarod;  Amjad's two sons, Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash on sarod as well; along with tabla player Amit Kavthekar. In Sharon Isbin's own words: "The music Amjad Ali Khan has composed for guitar and sarod is sheer genius, and I don't use this term lightly. In an amazing way, it interweaves our varied musical, spiritual and artistic traditions with mystical beauty, creativity, grace and great emotion."
