Sounds of Kolachi, also spelled Sounds-of Ko Laa Chi is a Pakistani Ensemble from Karachi. Like an Indian Ocean blast from the seaport megacity it calls home, Sounds of Kolachi, 10-piece super group of vocalists and instrumentalists from Karachi, blurs raga and Western harmony, counterpoint and South Asian melodic lines, all without losing the groove. In this instantly listenable ensemble, 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.
