For the first time ever two renowned singers of two different genres from two different nations but the same language, came together on one platform to perform in Auckland.
On October 20, Sufi singer Kanwar Grewal from India’s Punjab and folk singer Arif Lohar from Pakistan’s Punjab performed for a houseful show in Auckland’s Vodafone Event Centre.
The amalgamation of folk and Sufi was unique and hugely appreciated and loved by the audience who did not leave the auditorium for the entire four hours of the show.
The artists were well-connected with the audience who seemingly enjoyed every bit of the concert with many dancing to their tunes. Both Kanwar Grewal and Arif Lohar went into the public for interaction and joined them in the dancing.
The show was organised by NZ Future Trust and JK Star Productions NZ jointly and was sold out a couple of days before the event with several people still seeking the tickets.
The organiser Karam Hundal said that he was delighted with the audience’s response which was adamant to the fact that there is a good appetite for such cultural concerts in Auckland.
