Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan, his sons Amaan and Ayaan Ali Khan, along with Pakistani qawwali maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, American singer-songwriter Steven Tyler and a bevy of international artistes will perform at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway, on December 11, the organisers announced.

This year, Indian child rights activist, Kailash Satyarthi, shares the Nobel Peace Prize with Pakistani teenager Malala Yousufzai who stood up to the Taliban and survived a near-fatal shooting. And this is the reason the organisers have invited artistes from India and Pakistan to present a special blend of traditional and modern music sensibilities of the two countries and pay tribute to the laureates’ homeland.

Academy Award nominated, Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor and singer Queen Latifah will host the musical celebrations.
