Legendary artistes tune in for cross-border musical triad in Dubai

Top artists from Pakistan and India to perform on Friday(today) in a special post-Eid extravaganza in Dubai.

We reckon it’s never too late to celebrate Eid, especially when the revelry includes top-notch musicians from the Asian sub continent.

The concert Eid-E-Milan, organised by Cyclops Events, featuring Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, along with Indian singer Shaan and music composer Aadesh Shrivastava at Madinat Jumeirah Arena.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who is the nephew of legendary Sufi singer Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, is no newcomer to Dubai. With a concert appearance annually in the last three years alone, the younger Khan’s fan following has only grown since his meteoric rise in the Indian film industry.

The 36-year-old, who comes from a 200-year-old lineage of qawwali singers, started his music training at the age of seven.

Khan’s versatile vocals also played a large part on the soundtrack of Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto”.

The trio, along with host Saumya Tandon, will perform live on Friday at Madinat Jumeriah, with tickets ranging between Dh200 and Dh1,500.
