Asia Society Texas Center presents Riyaaz Qawwali in Kashti
Asia Society Texas Center
Asia Society Texas Center welcomes these longtime favorites to its stage to celebrate the release of its debut CD, Kashti. Meaning boat or ship in Urdu and Hindi, Kashti draws upon the expansive embrace of qawwali to transcend religious, spiritual and linguistic boundaries. The CD weaves poetry from diverse cultures to illumine the "oneness" residing at the heart of faith traditions around the world. Kashti is a beautiful reflection of Riyaaz Qawwali's belief that music is a potent medium for connection, transcendence and joy.
