Residency

Zeshan B

July 5, 2022 - July 10, 2022
Zeshan Bagewadi, known professionally as Zeshan B, is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording artist from Chicago, Illinois. His signature style is combining classic funk and soul sounds with lyrics that pay tribute to his South Asian roots. On his album, Melismatic, his first collection of entirely original compositions, he sings in both English and Urdu. Zeshan B is focused on social justice and bringing to light issues around race, class, and culture through his music. "Brown Power," the lead single from Melismatic, is all about solidarity between historically oppressed minority groups.

Zeshan B will be an artist-in-residence from July 5-10. The Chicago-based singer and songwriter will center his residency around community engagement and empowerment, sharing his unique blend of American soul with cultural influences from India, Pakistan and the American civil rights movement. During his residency, Zeshan B will host community workshops and perform in three live concerts.
