Kiran Ahluwalia: "Hayat" from Michal Shapiro on Vimeo.

The night was blizzardy, and the going was rough by car or by foot. This did not keep anyone away, and the house was packed. Kiran opened up this concert with the first song from her latest album, “Sanata” (stillness)

HAYAT
Lyrics & Music: Kiran Ahluwalia
Arrangement: Rez Abbasi

Life drifts in its own shadow.
Dragging along lounging sighs, life o life.

Those who speak my tongue are unevenly scattered.
Still, I collect conversations. I may run into someone.
I’ve been your refugee, life o life.

It’s wasting away, chasing ideas of love, my friend.
Those first sighs, that first story, life o life.

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
