Like an Indian Ocean blast from the seaport megacity it calls home, Sounds of Kolachi, a new 10-piece super group of vocalists and instrumentalists from Karachi, Pakistan blurs raga and Western harmony, counterpoint and South Asian melodic lines, all without losing the groove. South Asian classical instruments like the sitar and bowed sarangi are on equal footing with electric guitar and rock rhythm section. Guiding the journey, composer, theorist, and singer Ahsan Bari spins outrageous, bluesy, modal riffs, boosted by a quartet of male and female voices. “Sounds of Kolachi’s distinctive sound sets it far apart. The band-cum-orchestra left the audiences enthralled.” - Express Tribune, Pakistan US debut tour: other appearances include The Kennedy center (DC) and Savannah Music Festival.
