The Mazza Castle Music Salon Series welcomes the Riffat Sultana Band.

Riffat Sultana represents the unique vision of a true world fusion where continents and histories come together in the music. She channels the musical wisdom of 500 years and eleven generations of master vocalists from India and Pakistan. Riffat is the first woman from her family’s musical lineage to publicly perform in the west. Riffat performs a wide variety of traditional and modern material from the Indian sub-continent, including Sufi, Geet, Ghazal, Filmi, Qawwali, and Light Classical. Her performances are devotional, and ecstatic Sufi songs are sure to move your heart, soul, and feet!
