Ghazal singer, Kiran Ahluwalia, released her fifth album, Aam Zameen: Common Ground, last year. This won her second Juno award for Best World Music Album. Kiran's musical style is known for fusing other music with ghazals, such as Portuguese fado and Tuareg blues. The infamous cover of Mustt Mustt in collaboration with the Malian blues group, Tinariwen, also gained much fame over the past year. Sarika Mehta spoke with Kiran at her home in New York City, while she was on a short break from her European tour.
