In August of 2017, Zeshan made his US television debut with a stirring rendition of his hit single, “Crying in the Streets” on CBS’s Late Night w/ Stephen Colbert at the historic Ed Sullivan Theater. This was followed by a PBS NewsHour special (“Groovin’ for Change”).
Since then, he continues to be on tour with appearances at iconic venues and festivals such as the Lincoln Center, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest Fest, House of Blues (Boston), Kennedy Center, the Blue Note (NYC) and the Canadian National Exhibition. He has performed for two US Presidents--Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama--with the latter performance taking place at the White House’s historic inaugural Eid Celebration in 2016.
Zeshan is a polyglot--he is fluent in Urdu and Italian and proficient in Spanish and Punjabi.
