Shabaz with guest performer, Rasa Vitalia at Open Secret, San Rafael, CA. 7.28.12
Shabaz is an incredibly rich synthesis of Sufi-Qawwali, and World Beat dance. Featuring two of the most .powerful Pakistani/Indiani voices performing today. Riffat Sultana and her brother Sukhawat Ali Khan, accompanied by the extraordinary guitarist Richard Michos. Featuring amazing musicians Rami Ziadeh (drums/percussions) Gurdeep Singh (tabla and dhole drums), Charles Mozelle (bansuri flutes and saxaphone), and Sukhawat Ali Khan on harmonium.
Shabaz are part of an eleven-generation continuum: the brother and sister duo, at the heart of the band are the children of the great classical singing Maestro Ustad Salamat Ali Khan. Their lineage extends back to court singers for the Mhogul empereor in India, Akbar the Great. Special guest dance artist, Rasa Vitalia. http://www.RasaVitalia.com
