Her crystal clear voice arched superbly above rhythms that coursed through the audience...an evening of fascinating, newly revealed music.Los Angeles Times
Kiran Ahluwalia is a modern exponent of the great vocal traditions of India & Pakistan which she honors intensely yet also departs from in assertive, personal ways. Accompanied by traditional Indian percussion and contemporary Western instruments, Ahluwalia's boundary-blurring songs invite us to explore the human condition, transcending the self by losing ourselves in love.
At the center of Kiran Ahluwalia’s music is love in all its shades and hues – from yearning romantic love to Sufi mysticism. Born in India, raised in Canada- Ahluwalia's latest CD, Aam Zameen: Common Ground, was recently awarded her second JUNO Award (Canada’s prestigious “Grammy”). Her discography, now five albums deep is one of global music’s most interesting furrows.
On stage Kiran is accompanied by some of North America's most exciting artists: Downbeat magazine's No. 2 Rising Star guitarist Rez Abbasi, hard grooving tabla player Nitin Mitta, the very funky Mamadou Ba on bass and superbly melodic accordion player Will Holshouser.
