Expressing her muse through ghazals and Punjabi folk songs, Kiran Ahluwalia explores the language of the heart with beautiful artistry and smoldering intensity.
Born in India, raised in Canada, and now living in New York city, her enchanting and seductive music has garnered glowing praise from critics around the world. Renowned vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia will be back in Victoria on Saturday April 27, performing at Alix Goolden Hall at 8 p.m.
It’s been two years since Ahluwalia last captivated Victoria with her enchanting voice and beautiful music, and in that time her music continues to evolve beyond the Indian genre to embrace influences from around the world. On her latest album Aam Zameen: Common Ground, Ahluwalia takes her penchant for fusing styles to a whole new level, by bringing to fruition her love for African Tuareg rhythms.
Partial proceeds from the concert will benefit Child Haven International, a Canadian charity that operates nine homes for destitute children and women in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Tibet.
Tickets for the April 27 show are $34, and are available at Ditch Records and Lyle’s, and brownpapertickets.com.
