Kiran Ahluwalia Ensemble: Music Beyond Borders

Kiran Ahluwalia’s seductive voice draws on her Indian-Punjabi heritage, fusing the hypnotic grooves of her homeland with passionate Saharan desert blues and innovative western jazz. Her original compositions and arrangements embody the essence of ghazal, an ancient form of poetry influenced by Sufi mysticism, about illicit, unattainable love. Accompanied by her band, including New York jazz guitarist Rez Abbasi and Nitin Mitta on tabla, Ahluwalia invites us to explore the human condition and lose ourselves in love.
