PRESENTED BY AMIKA KUSHWAHA AND CASSIUS KHAN

Lineup announced! 100% Canadian!

We are excited to present Canada’s Premiere Indian Classical Music and Dance event, the 11th Annual Mushtari Begum Festival of Indian Classical Music and Dance. The MBF is taking place on Saturday, September 24th 2022 at 7pm featuring the Kathak/Harmonium maestra Amika Kushwaha, who will dazzle the audience with her trademark “Poetry in Motion” Kathak performance, where she will present stupendous footwork patterns and blinding pirouettes. The 2011 Red FM Idol, Khayal vocalist Dr. Kamaljeet Gill from Edmonton, Alberta, will enchant the evening with her stirring and powerful voice. Maestro Baljit Singh’s sonorous bowed instrument, the Dilruba, appropriately named as the “Strings of the Heart”, will accompany all the artists that evening. Dr. Disha Mehta will be presenting a Ghazal alongside her teacher and guru, The Ghazal/Tabla Wizard Cassius Khan. Canadian Olympic Coach Ram Nayyar and Ashifa Tharani will read the translations of the poetry on stage as well and help create the magical flair the MBF is famous for. Such will be the passion and enchantment they create, intoxicating the soul with ancient melodies and rhythms, that undoubtedly, your ears will begin to see and the eyes, listen…
