Kiran Ahluwalia is a two-time Juno award winning modern Indian music singer based out of New York City, and a friend to KBOO having appeared previously on both Stage & Studio and APA Compass! She joins us again on Tuesday, June 16th to talk about her latest album, Sanata: Stillness.
Kiran's style is unique because she fuses modern Indian and Saharan desert blues rhythms. She often composes and performs new styles with her husband - reknowned jazz guitarist Rez Abbasi. He has also collaborated with artists including the Vijay Iyer Trio. The last time Kiran and Rez were in Portland for the debut concert, they gave us a taste of this new album with the song, Sanata. You can enjoy more with this video of the song, Hayat.
Tune in Tuesday, June 16 at 11 am on KBOO as guest host Sarika Mehta chats with Kiran Ahluwalia and Rez Abbasi for Stage & Studio!
