Soz- khwani performance by Askari Naqvi

This Soz Khwani performance by Asqari Naqvi was brought to us by Mahindra Sanatkada Festival and took place at Museum of Memories: Remembering Partition held on August 4|5|6. This three day pop up museum was packed with a range of discussions, performances, screenings, exhibitions and much more, all united by the common thread of Partition.

Performed traditionally during the month of Muharram as a way of lamenting, Soz-Khwani is a poetic description of a battle against the tyranny in Karbala.
