Sir Richard Bishop with special guest Sana Illahe

August 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Sir Richard Bishop was born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1960. He is best known for his 26 year involvement with the band Sun City Girls and as an experimental solo guitarist whose work often reflects the shadow worlds of India, the Middle East, North Africa, and other points along the Gypsy trail.

Support act Sana Illahe is a visiting lecturer in the UWL Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department. She is also a highly trained vocalist in the Hindustani classical music tradition of Pakistan. As a pupil under the mentorship of a classical music maestro, Ustaad Hussain Bakhsh Gullu, she has studied the classical genre which requires extensive training in “raags,” arrangements of pitches, which is the genre appealing to specific energies and moods within the audience and the singer. Through her study of sargam (solfege), and the classical, traditional song forms (kheyal, thumri, ghazal, kafi), Illahe has thoroughly internalized the centuries old musical traditions.
