"A Nowruz Celebration” feat. Kayhan Kalhor & Shujaat Husain Khan
Persian-Indian Fusion Concert

Eclectic Orange Series Sponsors: Judith and Howard Jelinek
Additional support from Bette and Wylie Aitken


Marking the arrival of spring, Nowruz (the Persian New Year) is a unifying force celebrated by diverse people from various ethnic communities and religious backgrounds. The Grammy-nominated Ghazal Ensemble—comprised of Iranian kamancheh player Kayhan Kalhor, Indian sitar player Shujaat Husain Khan, and Indian tabla player Sandeep Das—celebrate Nowruz by bringing together the musical traditions of Indian and Persian classical music.

Described by the Los Angeles Times as “utterly captivating...an irresistible expression of creative musical passion,” Ghazal’s performances and recordings have garnered critical acclaim as well as a 2004 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional World Music Album for their 2003 live album The Rain. Amazon named Ghazal’s first CD, Lost Songs of the Silk Road, to its list of the best 100 world music albums ever recorded.
