Red FM has announced the season 2 of ‘Reclaim the Saaz’.
The concert will showcase the heritage and melodies of Kashmiri music. The event is scheduled to take place at Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC) on November 18, 2023.
After the first virtual edition, the first-of-its-kind Kashmiri music festival is back on the ground. The event will celebrate the tradition of the mystical music of Kashmir that has been passed down many generations through centuries.
The 2nd edition of “Reclaim the Saaz” will offer a blend of folk and fusion. Abdul Rashid Hafiz, Kabul Bukhari, Ishfaq Kawa and Shazia Bashir will present their renditions of traditional folk songs infused with contemporary elements.
The musical night will also include a comedy set by Rayees Mohiuddin.
Nisha Narayanan, Director and COO, Red FM, and Magic FM, said, "As advocates of revitalizing the regional fabric of our country, we are exhilarated to be presenting season 2 of “Reclaim the Saaz.” Kashmiri music is a gift from the foothills of the Himalayas, which unfortunately has been forsaken. To revive it and nurture the present generations with their own cultural history, we are humbled to present the audience with a folk and fusion-themed concert. We are looking forward to promoting and preserving invaluable cultural treasures while also providing a platform for Kashmiri singers to showcase their artistry and entertain our audience.”
