These performance programmes are curated and produced by the Aga Khan Music Initiative, an interregional music and arts education programme with worldwide performance, outreach, mentoring, and artistic production activities. The Initiative supports artists and artistic communities in the Middle East and North Africa, West Africa, Central Asia, and South Asia that seek to
reassemble and further develop diverse expressions of a shared musical heritage in contemporary forms. Working with partners and collaborators around the world, its performance, outreach, and production activities offer a broad platform for contemporary, tradition-inspired music. In parallel, it develops new models for community-based arts education that revitalise cultural heritage as a source of livelihood for musicians while promoting pluralism.
