.Ballimaaraan in San Jose

music in the park san jose

This winter, prolific Indian actor, playwright and songwriter Piyush Mishra imports his live concert Ballimaaraan in the US for the first time. A celebration of 19th-century Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib, the show defies genres by merging a full band with Mishra’s conversational lyricism. The visionary artist is known for his combination of hard-hitting political commentary and humor. Ballimaaraan premiered in 2016 and quickly gained a cult following, with high-energy songs like “Aarambh” and “Husna” winning over younger generations throughout India. Now it’s time for American audiences to see what all the buzz is about. (AM)
