Ghazal US Tour 2003

New York, USA – The international group Ghazal will be touring the United States in the fall of 2003. Ghazal plays Persian and Indian improvisations. Created and led by Kayhan Kalhor and Shujaat Husain Khan, the Ghazal Ensemble has created an Indo-Persian fusion which blends two distinctive
classical musics: Persian (Iranian) and Hindustani (North Indian). Intertwined for centuries in Northern India, these musics share some formal elements which allow for an exquisite and harmonious dialogue between the two traditions.

The ensemble that will visit the US includes Kayhan Kalhor – kamancheh (spike fiddle), Shujaat Husain Khan – sitar, and Sandeep Das – tabla
