More on Ghazal Ensemble from Live Sounds:

The spellbinding Ghazal Ensemble continues its highly influential and original Persian and Indian collaboration with a rare performance. Iran’s kamancheh (spiked fiddle) master Kayhan Kalhor and India’s sitar (stringed lute) virtuoso Shujaat Husain Khan have toured the world over to critical acclaim for creating this intoxicating, delicate fusion. They will be joined by the superb tabla player Sandeep Das.
This highly influential group has toured the world over to critical acclaim and is lauded for creating an original, delicate Indo-Persian fusion blending their two distinctive classical music traditions: the Persian dastgah and North Indian raga. Intertwined historically, geographically and culturally for centuries, these musical styles share some formal elements and modes which allow for exquisite and harmonious dialogue between the two traditions.
Shujaat Husain Khan, one of today’s greatest North Indian artists, represents the seventh generation of illustrious musicians in the Imdad Khan gharana (musical lineage) which includes his father the great sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. Kayhan Kalhor, a creative force in today’s international music scene, is considered the preeminent ambassador of Persian music. He is known for stirring improvisations, exquisite compositions, and extensive collaborations with artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Brooklyn Rider, Kronos Quartet and Osvaldo Golijov.

More on Mai Dai from Live Sounds:

This concert marks a rare opportunity to hear Rajasthani music from Pakistan with Mai Dhai, a traditional Manganiyar singer and dhol player from the Thar Desert region. Hailing from Tharparkar, in the interior region of Sindh province, Mai Dhai’s driving percussion and other-worldly voice evoke the ancient rhythms of times long past.
The Manganiyars are a caste of Muslim musicians who traditionally performed for the kings of Rajasthan in the subcontinent. Their repertoire ranges from ballads about the kings to Sufi songs written by various mystics as well as songs for occasions such as birth, marriage, rains, and feasts.
Even though they are classified as folk musicians, the Manganiyars music is classical and can be considered a root of classical music in the Indian Subcontinent. Dhai will be joined by her ensemble of three on percussion (tabla and dholak) and harmonium.

More on Camané & Dead Combo from NJPAC:

Called “the greatest fadista since Amália Rodrigues and Maria da Fé,” Camané is a leading male fadista of his generation – a musical adventurer and guardian of the Portuguese national soul. Camané has sold more than 6 million albums and is frequently on tour in Europe. He made his long-awaited North American debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival in 2011.Tó Trips and Pedro Gonçalves are Dead Combo: incarnates of an undertaker and a gangster.
Also performing is Dead Combo (“Lisboa Mulata”), the Portuguese instrumental band that reinvented fado. Dead Combo has released seven albums, three of which were awarded Record of the Year and Record of the Decade in Portugal.
