For the culmination of a series of ten public events co-presented by the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, interrogating how heritage and contemporary creativity enhance and affect both quality of life and sustainability in a range of Muslim contexts,

The Aga Khan Music Initiative brings to Art Night a concert featuring a trio of master musicians from Syria and Tajikistan.

"Inspired by Maqam" features Sirojiddin Juraev, Basel Rajoub and Feras Charestan who perform their own compositions and arrangements rooted in and inspired by maqam - a vast domain of sophisticated art song and instrumental music that evolved over at least a millenium in the Eastern Mediterranean, Iraq, Iran, Azerbaijan, North Africa and Central Asia.
