Aga Khan Music Awards (from minute 5.20 to 10.50)

7 April 2019

On BBC radio aired on 7 April, Fairouz Nishanova, Director of the Aga Khan Music Awards and the Aga Khan Music Initiative, said: "What we really want to underline in every action of this weekend is that to many,  Muslim and music in the same sentence would sound like a contradiction in terms. We want to demonstrate once more, that the Great East has, over centuries brought many beautiful examples of art, poetry and music, creation, architecture, astronomy... And we tend to forget it in today’s world.
