Mushtari Begum Festival of Indian Classical Music and Dance

Massey Theatre 28 Sep '19 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Mushtari Begum Festival of Indian Classical Music and Dance

On the evening of September 28th 2019, the Massey Theatre will be transformed into an ethereal courtyard, immersing audiences into the timeless and ancient forms of Indian Classical music and dance. Founded by New Westminster's globally recognized Cassius Khan and Amika Kushwaha, the 8th Anniversary Mushtari Begum Festival of Indian Classical Music and Dance, which is a tribute to his guru, the late Ghazal Queen Mushtari Begum, is inviting you to experience a journey of emotions through these rare classical arts performed live.

Some of the finest Canadian and Indian artists will showcase their explosive talents at this one of a kind festival. Headlining performances will be given by Western Canadian Music Award nominees Cassius Khan and Amika Kushwaha. Cassius Khan will showcase his trademark mastery of singing Ghazals while simultaneously playing the Tabla, and the graceful and powerful Kathak dancer Amika Kushwaha will enthrall the audience with her difficult and complex Kathak Dance.

Prajakta Potnis Trehan, one of Canada's finest Kathak dancers, will grace our stage alongside Amika Kushwaha in an explosive Kathak dance duet, and will be accompanied by not one, but two Tabla players, the charismatic Ustad Amarjeet Singh and Cassius Khan, and will be accompanied by the Dil Ruba Maestro Baljit Singh.

The Carnatic music duo, the scintillating Violinist Kaushik Sivaramakrishnan and Mridangam wizard Abhishek Iyer will serenade the MBF stage with their mesmerising musicality.

Each artist will perform exquisite and traditional numbers in their respective art forms. Such will be the passion and enchantment they create, intoxicating the spirit with melodies and rhythms, that undoubtedly, your Ears will begin to See and the Eyes listen!
