Muslim Societies in South Asia Seminar
Salim and Sulaiman Merchant, Musicians and composers
Moderator: Ali Asani, Professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures; Director, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program, Harvard University
The Merchant brothers, Salim and Sulaiman, rank among the most dynamic and talented musicians and composers in South Asia today. The breadth and range of their musical ability attests to their intrinsic genius: from award winning musical scores and compositions in Indian and American cinema to collaborations with some of the most talented and ground-breaking musicians of our times. Salim and Sulaiman will reflect on their musical careers and some of their widely acclaimed compositions inspired by Islam’s rich tradition of spirituality and artistic expression.
