ASHK

ASHK (the word means “love” in Turkish and “tear” in Persian) is the latest project from Nova Scotia’s Nasr sisters. The three have devoted many years to studying and performing music in different parts of the world and their shows reflect their travels, studies and musical passions.  Ariana brings us to France, Eastern Europe and beyond, via the sounds of Edith Piaf, the Roma, and the Balkans. Sahara explores the music of India and Persia, sharing Sufi poetry of Rumi in her own compositions. And Kamila takes us to Portugal through Fado, to Brazil via hip hop, and treats us to original Afghan-Celtic fusions.  The sisters recently teamed up with versatile world percussionist Ken Shorley, who transports us to the Middle East, South Asia and Turkey as he moves effortlessly between instruments and styles.
