Kiran Ahluwalia

Thursday, April 28, 2016

8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Location: FLATO Markham Theatre

Indo-Canadian singer Kiran Ahluwalia’s music is Middle Eastern with a Western twist. A modern exponent of the great vocal traditions of India and Pakistan, Ahluwalia honours this influence in her music while also departing from it in masterful and personal ways. Her original compositions embody the essence of Indian music while embracing influences from both the West and Africa — specifically the Sahara. With her five-piece group of electric and acoustic guitars, harmonium, tabla and electric bass, Ahluwalia creates boundary-breaking songs that invite us to explore the human condition, transcending the self by losing ourselves in love.

Born in India, raised in Canada and currently living in New York City, Ahluwalia’s last CD, Aam Zameen: Common Ground was awarded a JUNO for “Best World Music Album of the Year”, her second award in the same category. Her discography, now six albums deep is one of global music’s most interesting adventures. Her 2014 album, Sanata: Stillness is a hybrid of Indo-Saharan music.

"Austerely lovely." ~The Washington Post
