All Pakistan Music Conference – Day 2

After reading Huma’s post, I made a trip to the APMC…and boy was it FUN!!!!!!

I managed to get there at about 9 pm ish….and had the opportunity to watch a group of young singers display their talent, followed by another young artist, who did a solo “khayal” with his harmonium.

The of the senior, more professional artists, one of the most enthralling performances of the night were put up by Ustad Abdul Sattar Tari on the Tabla, along with Ustad Nafees Ahmed Khan on the Sitar.

Although 2 performences, one by Sara Zaman, and another by Ustad Naseeruddin Saami, were, in my opinion, slightly boring, but the rest of the performanced truly ROCKED

All this topped off by a rocking performance from the Mekaal Hassan Band.

Truly, an evening well spent into the night!

Just got home at 4.35 am in the morning…

Were any of you there? your comments? opinions?

    it was a treat for sure. though i dd think sara zaman was brilliant. the tabla sequence was truly beautiful but very very long. mekaal shoulda taken stage earlier but yet. it was wonderful.. i think everyone got hoje at 4:30. huma was there. so were quite a million others :). who’d want to miss mekaal?

    uff. it was so good, and the tabla players and mhb were truly the highlights of the show. i didnt like sara zaman’s performance though, and i thought the organizers should have let mhb play for a bit longer.

    I totally agree….
    MHB should have been allowed atleast half an hour more…
    and ive always loved their mid track improvisational sessions!!!

    the end to Ya Ali was ultimate!
