LEHER Presents Sufiyana Bahaar
Dr. Amal Jawa
LEHER on its fifth anniversary presents a Live musical show bringing Sufi inspired music for the first time in Boston at their musical fundraiser concert: Sufiyana Bahaar.
Sufiyana music is passionate, spiritual, entrancing music derived back to medieval times from Urdu/Punjabi poetry by Rumi, Amir Khusrow, Baba Bulleh Shah, with the goal of uniting the musician and listener to the divine.
Our collection of songs this year include a beautiful mix of Sufi-inspired Qawallis, Couplets, and melodious songs with a LEHER fusion feel. We will showcase a musical blend of vocal and instrumental finesse and perform our energetic renditions of classics such as Khwaja mere Khawaja, Afreen Afreen, Akhiyan Udeek Diyan, Mast Qalander which will make you want to clap along! We are excited to present unique collaborations of the ancient instruments Esraj, Sarod, and Setar mixed with rock beats from Cambridge based band Charles Delta. Attendees will be wooed by the wonderful shayari by our Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Syed Ali Rizvi and be entertained by a live Sufiyana performance featuring dancing stars Vasudha Kudrimoti, Rakhee Wagal, Vaishali Gade, and Hanna Jose.
Leher, meaning Waves in Hindi, began as a concept in a NH living room- the purpose was to bring local musicians and singers together for performing various genres of Southeast Asian music for our Boston community annually for a charitable cause. Each year we tackle a new genre and feature youth musicians to participate in the full production. Our prior productions include: Shaam-e-Leher in 2013, Mitti ke Rang in 2014, and Tarang Unplugged in 2015.
With our Suifyana Bahaar show we will be collaborating with and raising funds for the Association of India’s Development (AID Boston) maternal and child health projects in Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Chattisgarh, and Tamil Nadu. On the auspicious day of Mothers Day we hope to support these wonderful grassroots projects focusing on marginalized communities in rural India by donating all of our proceeds. If you believe in the cause and want to support, please, join us for Sufiyana Bahaar on May 14th, 2017 at 4PM At the historic Cary Memorial Auditorium. Leher believes in the power of collaborative music to unite our local communities in an effort to empower change locally and in India. We look forward to entertaining the Boston community and joining hands to contributing to maternal and child health projects via AID Boston.
