Artist Line-up
  • Rakesh Chaurasia
    Amongst the promising musicians of the second generation, Rakesh has carved a niche for himself, as an accomplished flautist. His flute has matched note and rhythm with wind instruments of other cultures as well as having performed ‘jugalbandi’ with Carnatic instrumentalists.

  • Areej Sufi Ensemble
    The Sultanate of Oman is anchored in a great Arab tradition that turns majestically to the immensity of the Indian Ocean towards Zanzibar and Persia. When the group leader sees that the participants and viewers are in a state of euphoria and rapture begins and consists of heavy, melodious rhythm. He performs for all the members of the group and his words contain greetings (or Salamat) from the Prophet, peace be upon him.

  • Duo Bud
    Engulfed in a mysterious aura and fabulous ecstatic sound, the compositions of the Korean Percussion Duo Bud cover an intense palette of human emotions through their expressions. The yanggeum is a traditional Korean string instrument. It is a hammered dulcimer. Unlike other traditional Korean instruments, the yanggeum has metal strings. It is played by striking the strings with a bamboo stick.

  • Kanishk Seth
    Kanishk Seth is a young experimental musician blending the timeless with the contemporary. Along with his band members he performs classics of the renowned poet Amir Khusrow and his original songs to create a surreal musical experience.

  • Ustad Bahauddin Dagar
    Born into the illustrious Dagar family of Dhrupad musicians in 1970, Mohi Bahauddin first began his foray into Indian Classical Music at an early age of seven, training on the Sitar under the expert tutelage of his mother, Smt. Pramila Dagar. His vocal training with his uncle, Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar, his mentor helped him a great deal. The culmination of rudraveena and voice, brings in a distinctive and precise sense of timing in the cutting of the phrases whilst presenting the aalap, jor and jhala.

  • Walid Ben Selim
    Selim is the poet of the impossible and the invisible. Inspired by the great poets of the Arab world and of the Orient, from Mahmoud Darwiche to Rumi and to the Sufi poets of Morocco, he weaves in a sweet and airy chant of old words that awaken our spirit and our soul.

  • Nourou Salam
    Born into a Fulani family in northwestern Senegal, Papa Dimbira Sow sings to keep alive the family tradition. Like his grandfather and his maternal uncle before him, he is a singer in the tradition of the brotherhood of Qadiriya.
