Led by Pakastini-born brother-sister duo Riffat Sultana and Sukhawat Ali Khan, the world fusion band Shabaz boasts an eleven-generation continuum. At the heart of the band are two children of the great classical singer Salamat Ali Khan. Their lineage extends back to court singers for Akbar the Great. Sukhawat and Riffat joined with Riffat’s husband Richard Michos, guitarist/producer, to apply their classical chops to a ravishing fusion of danceable Qawaali-Jazz-Hindustani-classical-Ghazal-rock-electronica. Multi-instrumentalist Charles Moselle recently joined the band and will appear with Riffat and Richard for our live interview. https://www.facebook.com/events/295138030529926/
