Family Show: Khumariyaan

Pakistani music concert for families

Sunday, October 5, 2014 - 2:00pm
Location: Jewett Art Center Auditorium

In this interactive matinee concert for all ages, the Concert Series presents Khumariyaan, a group from Peshawar, Pakistan, the ancient crossroads through the Khyber Pass. The lute-like Pashtoonrubab, is the meeting point for this instrumental hyper-folk jam quartet. It intertwines with the djembe-likezerbaghali(clay or wooden goblet drum) and Pushtoon sitar (long-necked lute). Underpinning these instruments with driving acoustic guitars, Khumariyaan's richly layered sound builds to a dynamic spirit.
