7th Annual Mushtari Begum Festival

September 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Once again, the Massey Theatre is filled with a mosaic of Indian classical music and dance and allows the audience to become immersed into the soothing and healing sounds of the Mushtari Begum Festival.

Founded by two globally recognized New Westminster artists – Cassius Khan and Amika Kushwaha – the 7th annual iteration is Canada’s premier celebration of Indian classical music and dance. It immerses audiences in timeless and ancient forms of music and dance in an experience like no other.

Headlining the 2018 show are Western Canadian Music Award nominees Cassius Khan and Amika Kushwaha. Khan will be singing ghazals, an ancient form of musical poetry, while simultaneously playing the tabla, a rare feat of musicianship and skill.  Kushwaha is a master of Kathak, a classical Indian dance, and will be weaving stories throughout the evening with her stupendous movement.

The fine arts of Indian classical music and dance are rarely this accessible in Canada, and this festival provides opportunities for both connoisseurs of the art forms and curious newcomers to come together to enjoy and discover some of the most incredible dance and music performed in the historic Massey Theatre.

Featuring Pt Harvinder Sharma (Sitar) and Sharanjeet Singh Mand (Sitar) Vidhya Sagar (Carnatic Vocal) Abhishek Iyer (Mridangam) Dr. Disha Mehta (Vocal) Amika Kushwaha (Kathak/Harmonium) Cassius Khan (Vocal/Tabla).

A full lineup of all performers is available online at www.mbfestival.ca
