Sufi fusion singer Riffat Sultana broke boundaries in 1995 by becoming the first woman from her family's musical lineage to perform in public. She is the daughter of the late Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, who is universally recognized as one of the finest Pakistani classical singers of his time. Ms. Sultana makes her New England debut accompanied by harmonium, guitar, dhol (drum), tabla, and bansuri (flute), performing a wide variety of traditional and modern works from Pakistan and India.A Crowell Concert Series event presented by the Music Department and the Center for the Arts. This event is also part of Muslim Women's Voices at Wesleyan. 'Riffat Sultana channels the musical wisdom of 500 years and eleven generations of master musicians from India and Pakistan, bringing a spectacular voice and talent to the world stage.' --Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide
