Kicking off the 9th Season of the Summer Concert Series at Union Church are the incredible Qais Essar and Amit Kavthekar for a percussive and intriguing performance. Discover Afghanistan’s ancient Rabab, in this meditative and exotic blend of old world instrumentation, with a dynamic and contemporary flare.


Qais Essar, talented musician and well experienced live performer, carries on the traditional legacy of classical Afghan instrumentation, as set by Ustad Mohammad Omar- the “Father of the Rabab”. Trained extensively in both classical and traditional mediums, Essar has been able to fuse the Rabab with both western and eastern styling, collaborating with many prominent artists and masters, covering the musical spectrum, performing domestically and internationally.
