Dubai-based Malhaar Centre for Performing Arts has a special treat for music lovers this Diwali and this comes from beyond the border.
Famed Pakistani ghazal singer Farida Khanum will interact with audiences over a live-streamed event on November 6.
In the Malhaar Centre ‘Baithak’, the 91-year-old singer, known for the song ‘Aaj Jane Ki Zidd Na Karo’, will join in from Pakistan and reminisce about her childhood and her years of studying music and performing all over the world.
Malhaar’s artists will perform Khanum’s compositions during the concert, such as ‘Mere Humnafas’, ‘Muhabbat Karnewale’ and ‘Dill Jalane Ki Baat’.
Jogiraj Sikidar, Founder-Director of Malhaar said, “It can’t get bigger than this as a Diwali gift for our Baithak followers. This is a dream come true for me, personally as well.”
“Music doesn’t have any border or faith and this Diwali we will gift our viewers, who have been with us through the pandemic times, the music of light and who can light up our world better than the musical icon of the Indian subcontinent — Farida Khanum saheba,” he added.
