As we all are witnessing the world has come into the clutches of women, slowly but surely.

Therefore PACC has taken an initiative by arranging small exhibition in its premises which is going to be held on *Friday, February 28, 2020 from 2:00pm – 8:00pm*. The exhibition will help promote apparel by female entrepreneurs and introduce their capacities in business fields and share entrepreneurial experiences at national and international levels.

Aron Daniel – Drums
Fazal Abbas – Tabla
Shahzad Ali – Harmonium
Anthony Soshil – Keyboard
Annan Noukhaez – Lead Guitar
Aamir Aly – Bass Guitar

An Evening of Mystical Music with Zayn Mohammed & Ustad Shahbaz

With Zayn Mohammed & Ustad Shahbaz Hussain from UK!
These two artists combined will take you through a musical journey touching South Asian classical and the Sufi orient of Turkey and North Africa.

Ustad Shahbaz Hussain is not just the UK’s leading tabla master, but globally recognized as an authority on the Delhi and Panjab Gharana (musical dynasties). Since the age of 5 and via an exceptional crop of Ustad’s (musical masters) he has become one of the leading table virtuoso’s of his generation.

Shahbaz Hussain performs all over the world and is much sought after for his accompaniment skills by many of the great master musicians of India & Pakistan – including Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, Ustad Shahid Parvez, Ustad Rais Khan, Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia and ghazal legend Ghulam Ali to name but a few.

Shahbaz Hussain will be on stage with what we at QalandarArts think is London’s best kept secret; Zayn Mohammed. An incredible multi instrumentalist , composer and guitarist who really knows no musical boundaries demonstrated by his skills across the flamenco/acoustic guitar, electric guitar, sarod, oud, rebab and ney. (A small montage of Shahbaz and Zayn) . Born in London he was playing flamenco by the age of 3. By the age of 9 he was performing flamenco nationally. Age 12 he appeared on live television playing the music of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.
