Kiran Ahluwalia and Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Live at Koerner Hall
This concert will take place on Friday, October 3, 2014 at 8:00 pm. This is the 445th concert in Koerner Hall
Kiran Ahluwalia has previously performed in Mazzoleni Concert Hall and have made their Koerner Hall debut on January 22, 2011. All of the other artists will make their Royal Conservatory debuts on October 3rd 2014.
Internationally acclaimed, two time Juno Award-winning vocalist and composer, Kiran Ahluwalia, explores the language of the heart with beautiful artistry and smoldering intensity, redefining Indian song in a contemporary and global context.
Born in India, raised in Canada, and now living in New York City, she has long been on a path to master the art of singing and composing. “When I was growing up in India,” she recalls, “there were concerts that people from all over would crowd into. These concerts featured a repertoire, language, and content that was both demanding and beyond the experience of a child. I was, however, entranced by the sound and feel of the music, even from an early age.”
Ms. Ahluwalia immersed herself in Indian classical music and ghazals from the time she was seven. She spent a decade of intense deep study with her guru, Vithal Rao, starting in the early 1990s. Back at home in Toronto, she released her first album in 2001. With each successive recording, she has moved well beyond her extensive training in Indian music – merging with multiple global influences – western jazz infused through guitarist/arranger Rez Abbasi and the feel of desert blues coming from a profound passion of music from the Sahara. This concert marks the release of her latest CD, Sanata: Stillness.
Romantic love is used as a metaphor for spiritual adoration and mystical enlightenment, drawing upon a rich vein of poetic imagery. It is not surprising that qawwali, a musical tradition with themes that encompass love, devotion, and longing, has become a staple of Bollywood film scores and an increasingly central focus of world music program in concert halls and festivals throughout the world.
The Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali is a qawwali group headed by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s nephews, Rizwan and Muazzam. The sons of Mujahid Mubarak Ali Khan, they have been performing together as Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali since the 1990s, having played their first major concert in 1998 at the Womad Rivermead Festival in Reading, England. The two lead singers come from a direct family line of qawwali music that spans over five centuries. Their grandfather was an uncle of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and taught Nusrat the art of qawwali vocal music. They themselves studied under their father, who died in 1996, and were then tutored by Nusrat. The band performs in traditional qawwali style – sitting on the ground rather than on seats – which they believe brings them closer to God. They sing in Farsi (Persian), Punjabi, and Urdu, with an intensity that has led one commentator to call them, only half in jest, “the Qawwali Clash.
