Stage and Studio on 04/23/13
Join Guest Producer and Host Sarika Mehta for a special on gifted singer Kiran Ahluwalia.
Ghazal singer, Kiran Ahluwalia, grew up in Toronto, Canada, wondering if anyone would ever be interested in listening to her sing this ancient form of Urdu poetry. Last year, she released her fifth album, Aam Zameen: Common Ground, which 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.
Kiran Ahluwalia will be giving her debut performance in Portland at the Alberta Rose Theater on Wednesday, April 24 at 8 pm. But first, she'll be speaking with guest host, Sarika Mehta, live on Stage and Studio.
Tune in for on Tuesday, April 23rd, at 11 am on Stage and Studio to hear the interview and her award-winning music!
