Award-winning Indo-Canadian artist Kiran Ahluwalia just released the gorgeous new album, Aam Zameen: Common Ground featuring collaborations with Terakaft and Tinariwen. Now the singer is about to embark on a U.S. tour that will take her coast to coast.
Born in India, raised in Canada and residing today in New York City, Ahluwalia’s international background is evident in her entire approach to music making. Previous recordings have found her fusing the sounds of her native India with those of Portugese fado, Celtic fiddle and Afghani rhubab. On her latest release, Ahluwalia flawlessly blends Indian rhythms and desert blues for one of the year's more unique offerings.
