A Journey Through the Music of South Asia

Amphitheater, Habib University

Concert with Yousuf Kerai & Shehroze Hussain

It is imperative, now more than ever, that the subtleties and nuances of our music be shared and cherished. Appreciating our cultural inheritance poses challenges owing to the lack of exposure to South Asian music and the pervasive, disguised version of it that is available courtesy Bollywood. Spanning over a thousand years, evolving with each new invading culture, the music of South Asia represents dynamics of an extremely diverse and rich cultural history. The nuances of various geographic regions, the idiosyncrasies of social interactions, and the philosophies that have transpired in the subcontinent, are all reflected in this musical tradition. Join Yousuf and Shehroze as they take you through the enchanting world of melody and rhythm in South Asian music.
