Zeb and Haniya performed live at the Madison World Music Festival on Friday September 14th at the Memorial Union Terrace on the UW-Madison campus in Wisconsin as part of their ongoing US tour.

In the words of the band: “Here are some pics from our show last night at the historic Memorial Union Terrace in Madison, WI. This is hands down the most beautiful venue we have ever played at. The gorgeous lake with the sun setting over it in the backdrop and an audience that really made it special by dancing all the way through the concert, even to very very slow tunes like ‘Kahaan.’ No wonder we were all giddy at the end of the show. Thank you Madison! Loving every minute of being here and looking forward to the St. Willy Fair in a few hours.”
