Event description
ISF+: Album Launch - Wayfinder by Mohamed Assani

About this Event

“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

Please join us in celebrating the album launch of Wayfinder, the latest project from the wheelhouse of beloved local treasure Mohamed Assani. 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 live performance of this unique album, featuring Mohamed Assani accompanied by Adham Shaikh. We invite you to the intimate stage of the Biltmore Cabaret for a social night of music, celebration and conversation, and to support the launch of a brilliant new album incubated right here in our midst. If you want to snag your Wayfinder CD or USB in advance, select the Ticket + Music USB/CD bundle options at check-out, and it will be waiting for you at the venue.
