RANG 2017 presents an enchanting evening of Urdu performance poetry and music on 18 November at The Junction, Alserkal Avenue. Urdu is one of the few scripts in the world, which has graced the courtyards of aristocrats as well as seeped into the homes of commoners, always agile and able to adapt to its surroundings but along the way also conscious of its stature and elegance. RANG is an evening, which pays homage to Urdu's glory using music and performance poetry, expressions that have and will further embed the language into our consciousness.
Rang 2017 features two of the best brands of music and performance arts in Dubai as key performers for the event: QISSA’ GO and Mastam. QISSA' GO is a theatre-based collective, will showcase the finesse of Urdu Poetry via theatrical renditions of the works of South Asian giants Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Sahir Ludhianvi, Habib Jalib, Parveen Shakir, N.M. Rashid, Meeraji, and Jaun Elia.
MASTAM featuring Schumaila Rehmat Hussain and Faraz Rizvi, is a husband-wife duo re-introducing a unique fusion of guitars and poetry in the Pakistani music industry. They will relive the melodies of legends Madam Noor Jehan, Abida Parveen, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and Atta Ullah Essa Khelvi. Also the original sound tracks of television dramas in Pakistan such as “Muntazir”, “Khamoshi” and “Muqabil”, jingles will also be played.
