Part of Embracing Complexity

Born in Chicago to Indian Muslim immigrants, Zeshan B’s musical identity was formed at the harmonious intersection of two worlds. As he was growing up, his parent’s love of their native Indo-Pakistani music collided with the sounds of his father’s extensive blues, soul, and R&B collection. Bagewadi brings all of those influences to the stage, creating a unifying and soulful sound from seemingly disparate traditions. He and his band will perform at the Friday Night Concert Series and then play a Saturday show in Hancher’s backyard.

Stormy weather? Saturday's concert would be cancelled.
