World Stage, Voices of Afghanistan Featuring Ustad Farida Mahwash, Homayoun Sakhi & The Sakhi Ensemble, March 2, 2013

Overview

Ustad Farida Mahwash's "beautifully expressive voice retains remarkable range, flexibility, and soul-searing intensity. And her spirit continues to soar"
The New York Times

"Fiercely virtuosic"—San Francisco Chronicle (of Homayoun Sakhi)

"The passionate mixing of sensual and sacred was uncontainable...these gifted artists left us cheering for the art that endures devastation."
Opera News/SF Magazine


Ustad Farida Mahwash, Afghanistan's best-loved singer and internationally renowned Afghan composer/rubâb master Homayoun Sakhi and his ensemble of luminary musicians return to explore their country's rich musical heritage. Voices of Afghanistan is a celebration of both the past and future of Afghan music, from the sacred to the secular, and the traditional to the contemporary.
