Pakistani Artists ready for Center Stage and Cannes 2017

Musical ensemble Sounds of Kolachi are headed to the USA as part of the Center Stage program.

Popularly known for their spirited celebration of Sufi music, Sounds of Kolachi is a 10-member ensemble spearheaded by Ahsan Bari.

The ensemble has members coming in and out but never missing a beat. It is a unique collaboration of sounds than musicians, as Ahsan Bari puts it.

Center Stage is a cultural exchange program initiated by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. It aims to introduce international contemporary artists to American communities.
Sounds of Kolachi are all set to mesmerise American audiences with a completely new set that falls into the ‘world music’ genre.

Also joining the group in their expedition is the Sufi singer, Sanam Marvi in a separate musical act.
