Event – November 1-22 | Salim & Sulaiman North American Tour to benefit Aga Khan Foundation Projects

Not only have they produced “big Bollywood hits,” from the award-winning Iqbal, to Shah Rukh Khan’s Chak De! India or Abhishek Bachchan’s Dhoom. They’ve also made a name for themselves within Sufi music and have performed for the Aga Khan himself.

“What they have done, what they have composed, what they have sung over the years has been appreciated by all — it’s why they have such a huge following, as a result, there’s already been a “tremendous” response to ticket sales for Saturday’s show — in which $1 from the sale of each ticket goes toward the Aga Khan Foundation.

The west coast kickoff show [Vancouver] is one of only three Canadian stops, as well as six other performances throughout the United States.
