Chicago: Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, who is enjoying a successful US tour along with his sons Amaan and Ayaan, feels that their relentless effort has paid off as the audience now is realising the depth of their music.

The trio has been touring the whole month of July and playing at cities like Houston, Seattle and Bloomington.

They also performed at the North Shore Centre for the Performing Arts in Skokie, a Chicago suburb where their music mesmerised the audience.

"I along with my sons, Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan, we had a very successful tour of America and people are realizing the depth of the music of the sarod and rediscovering its music," Khan told reporters.

"Because of (our) constant traveling of last 20 years, people are appreciating the music of the sarod," Khan added.

"The most memorable concert was in Santa Barbara, CA," Khan said about his tour.

They are scheduled to play at Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 30.
