ASHK is the latest project from the Nasr sisters. The three sisters have devoted many years to studying and performing music in different parts of the world including India, Afghanistan, China, Europe and Brazil… The word ASHK, means “love” in Turkish and “tear” in Persian. As the band performs in multiple languages and styles, playing a variety of instruments, ASHK creates a show that reflects their travels, studies and musical passions.

The sisters have teamed up with world percussionist Ken Shorley to take the audience on an international tour. Ariana brings us to France, Eastern Europe and beyond, hearing the sounds of Edith Piaf, the Roma, and the Balkans. Sahara explores the music of India and Persia, sharing Sufi poetry of Rumi in her own compositions. Kamila brings us to Portugal through Fado, to Brazil with hip hop and treats us to original Afghan-Celtic fusion. The versatile Ken Shorley will transport us to the Middle East, South Asia and Turkey as he flows effortlessly among instruments and styles.

ASHK's performance is powerful as they sing most selections with three or four part harmonies and perform with an impressive array of both eastern and western instruments. This is a show not to miss.
