Footsteps of Babur (May 8): Bringing together remarkable musicians from Afghanistan, India, and Tajikistan, this performance celebrates the exuberant vitality of the Mughal court in the 16th century. Homayun Sakhi (Afghan rubab), Rahul Sharma (santur), and Salar Nader (tabla) form a sublime trio that will transport audiences to the palaces and great rooms of Mughal India and Afghanistan. (Inspired by the Aga Khan Museum’s current exhibition, Visions of Mughal India: The Collection of Howard Hodgkin).
