  • Description

    In 'Nowruz', their accomplished debut album, the Aga Khan Master Musicians (AKMM) draw on music from Central Asia, China, the Middle East, and North Africa to create a strikingly original body of work where living musical traditions meet and meld. Acclaimed virtuosos on their respective instruments, the six members of AKMM deftly blend pipa, qanun, dutar, viola d'amore, saxophone, and a panoply of percussion into a soulful new musical language that comes alive in these eloquent performances.
