This programme features a musical collaboration that represents a modern-day encore of the remarkable artistic synthesis cultivated by the emperors who ruled the Mughal Dynasty, founded at the beginning of the 16th century by Babur. Inspired by visual images and literary descriptions of exuberant music-making in the Mughal courts, the programme unites musicians from Afghanistan, India, and Tajikistan, merging their talents, traditions, and musical instruments to create new sounds. Developed in 2009 by the Aga Khan Music Initiative for a CD entitled In the Footsteps of Babur: Musical Encounters from the Lands of the Mughals.
