About LOVEfest, an eclectic celebration of love and diversity through music and dance: Throughout the ages people have struggled to extend the love and respect offered to those familiar to us to others who are different and unknown - to minorities, immigrants, refugees and other vulnerable members of society. Artists, musicians, and religious and civil leaders alike have all advocated variations of the theme Love your neighbor or Welcome The Stranger. This call to acknowledge the common humanity of all people - and by extension their individual human rights - is a founding principle of modern society.

Kiran Ahluwalia's LOVEfest combines the talents of sacred and secular artists from both Muslim and Sikh traditions (two communities currently experiencing an alarming rise in hate crimes). Featuring the passionate vocals of Kiran Ahluwalia (from India) and the inspired Arabic songwriting of Souad Massi (Algeria), LOVEfest illuminates a diverse world of cultural artistic expression; offering performers and audiences alike an opportunity to Welcome The Stranger.

About Kiran Ahluwalia:

Kiran Ahluwalia is a two time JUNO (Canadian Grammy) winner. Rooted in Indian and Pakistani music her songs are heavily influenced by African desert blues and jazz. She sings of divine love in the form of Sufi mysticism and yearning sensual love in the style of her progressive Indian music. Her 5-piece group includes electric guitar, electric bass, tabla and accordion and voice.
About Souad Massi OFFICIEL.:
