Live from Barbes: A pre-Navratri South Asian musical spectacular!

Hear this show now: | Add comments

Brooklyn Qawwali Party (L) and Red Baraat Festival on the air from Barbes. Photos from a set by listener Steve Welsh.

Live from Barbes: Brooklyn Qawwali Party, Sunny Jain's Red Baraat Festival, Deep Singh & Ikhlaq Hussain + a special appearance by Kiran Ahluwalia

Tabla whiz Deep Singh and lightning-fingered sitar virtuoso Ikhlaq Hussain (a disciple of Pdt. Ravi Shankar) play spine-tingling duets.

Percussionist Sunny Jain's Red Baraat Festival, New York's first Indian brass band, plays boisterous wedding, folk and Bollywood songs.

Brooklyn Qawwali Party morphs the late great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Sufi devotional songs into splendiferous jazz / improv tours-de-force.

Plus a special appearance by internationally acclaimed composer / vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia, known especially for her ghazal sung-poems but also the Punjabi trad songs she’ll sing tonight with Sunny Jain (dhol) and Arun Luthra (sax).

Effusive thanks to guest host / tech guru Irene Trudel, engineer Bil Bowen plus Katie Gentile and Rich Hazelton, board op Meghan McKee, Michael Goodstein of Choking on Cufflinks for letting us run over time, and our partner in crime at Barbes, Olivier Conan.

WANTED: Obama Songs in multi-culti styles for our pre-election show!

We are putting together as many world music and / or non-English Obama songs as possible for the last show before the election on Saturday, November 1 and for a special one hour program during WFMU's special election day webstream on election day, November 4.

If you have suggestions for songs to play or want to offer your own creation, original song or mash-up please email your host Rob Weisberg via this g-mail address: r.l.weisberg AT gmail DOT com.
