The history of the Sarod was originally a primitive tribal instrument. The great sarod virtuoso Baba Alauddin Khan greatly refined this instrument, bringing the sarod into its modern configuration by adding many different features. He then taught his son, Ali Akbar Khan, sarod at the same time as he was teaching Ravi Shankar to play sitar.
