DIWAN – Shahbaz Hussain & Helen Anahita Wilson
September 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£21.43
Critically-acclaimed pianist/composer Helen Anahita Wilson joins forces with renowned international tabla master Ustad Shahbaz Hussain for a night of composed, indeterminate, and improvised intercultural music from their debut album ‘DIWAN.’
Combining both Western and Eastern musical sensibilities to stunning effect, Hussain & Wilson create a diverse yet organically coherent mix of musical elements. Their music has deep roots in contemporary Jazz and Classical influences melded to a shared love for Persian and South Asian musics; all of which serves to create an inimitable soundscape. Expect driving Punjabi rhythms, Persian melodies, transcendent harmonies and a brand new musical alchemy.
