As part of a major urban renewal project in the Humayun’s Tomb Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti area of Delhi, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture has been hosting the Jashn-e-Khusrau festival with the support of the Ford Foundation since 2010. Hazrat Amir Khusrau Dehlavi, the renowned 13th-century Sufi poet, was the favorite disciple of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. His remarkable legacy is entwined with the rich cultural heritage of the Hazrat Nizamuddin Basti.
This volume is a compilation of discussions, lectures, exhibitions, heritage walks, musical performances, as well as film screenings devoted to illustrating the impact of Hazrat Amir Khusrau Dehlavi’s legacy in folk and classical music all held as part of the Jashn-e-Khusrau festival. The book is accompanied by a set of three music CDs that will have selected tracks from spanning the repertoire of Jashn 2013 concerts.
