Award-winning Indian singer Kiran Ahluwalia is set to perform on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00 PM at DROM in New York city to present her new album, Aam Zameen: Common Ground. On this recording Kiran successfully merges her contemporary Indian song with Saharan desert blues.
Expressing her muse through ghazals and Punjabi folk songs, Kiran Ahluwalia explores the language of the heart with beautiful artistry and smoldering intensity. Her enchanting and seductive music has garnered glowing praise from critics around the world.
Most of all, Kiran Ahluwalia is a unique and inspiring performer and composer, whose legion of fans continues to grow with every captivating performance. With each successive recording, Kiran has moved ever onward from her own musical upbringing, reaching well beyond her extensive training in the genres of traditional ghazal and Punjabi folk music, shaping a style completely her own.
On stage, Kiran is accompanied by a stellar group of musicians: cutting edge New York City guitarist, Rez Abbasi, rising tabla star Nitin Mitta, hard grooving bassist Nikku Nayar and superbly melodic harmonium player Babloo.
