ISF+ World Premiere: Wayfinder by Mohamed Assani

24 April 2020, 19:00 - 24 April 2020, 22:00

“Assani is both a musician who’s deeply rooted in the artistic traditions of South Asia and a one-of-a-kind innovator who’s bent on ensuring that those age old forms will survive, and grow, in the modern era.” -The Georgia Straight 

Event Description

To bring you some joy during these uncertain times, we will be streaming the album launch of Wayfinder, the latest project from the wheelhouse of beloved local treasure Mohamed Assani.

We’d hoped to celebrate the launch of this brilliant new album in person, but we invite you to move around your furniture and dance together virtually. Hop on to our Facebook page or YouTube channel on Friday, April 24 at 7pm (Pacific Standard Time) – Mohamed Assani’s new album, Wayfinder, is sure to transport us all.

Watch it on Facebook (facebook.com/IndianSummerCanada/live/) or YouTube (youtube.com/watch?v=y33L_MEBSTs&feature=youtu.be)

About the album

Wayfinder is the story of a musician-explorer who journeys the world and comes home to empty his pockets and share his treasures. Mohamed Assani takes his sitar in a completely new and unexpected direction, bringing together unforeseen musical worlds and pushing the frontiers of cultural and musical hybridity. Using a refreshing, contemporary sound palette, Wayfinder incorporates a range of stylistic influences, including Indian/Pakistani Classical, Middle Eastern music, jazz, funk, Western harmony, ambient & electronic music. Both acoustic and electronic, it features sitar, tabla, mridangam, kanjira, mbira, voice and electronic sounds. It has been produced by Emmy and Juno-nominated music producer, Adham Shaikh.

The evening will feature the first-ever performance of this album. Support Mohamed Assani’s work by buying a digital version of Wayfinder: https://mohamedassani.bandcamp.com/album/wayfinder
