Sounds of Kolachi is a 10-piece group of vocalists and instrumentalists from Karachi, the largest city in Pakistan. The group blurs raga with Western harmony, counterpoint, and South Asian melodic lines in a performance that puts the sitar and bowed sarangi on equal footing with electric guitar and a rock rhythm section. Part of Center Stage, a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the New England Foundation for the Arts.
