Kiran Ahluwalia - Live @5 - Tuesday, Sept. 18th
Kiran Ahluwalia, a Juno-award-winning artist, brings her unique interpretations of North Indian music to Tucson for a Live@5 performance Tuesday on The Homestretch.
On tour in support of her new release Wanderlust, on Times Square, Kiran will perform at The Rialto Theatre in a KXCI Presents show. Doors open at 7pm for this night of sublime world music. If yearning had a musical form it would be ghazals, the Indian and Pakistani sung poetry about unrequited love. If longing was a genre, it would be fado, the melancholic Portuguese song form also based in poetry. Singer Kiran Ahluwalia - a musical wanderer who was born in India, raised in Canada, and now lives in New York City — unites the two on her latest recording, Wanderlust. The highly-anticipated album draws on fado, Saharan African blues, jazz, and more demonstrating Kiran’s continual journey to bring her unique ghazal style into a modern and global context.
