Alam Khan (Sarod) and Qais Essar (Rabab) have come together to drop their single STRANGE VILLAGE, presenting traditional instruments in a new and accessible context. Intent on creating a new genre of global music pulling from their diverse musical backgrounds. Says Alam, “We’d like to create outside of these boxes and do away with labels”. “It’s not only about creating a vehicle that will allow traditional instruments to be discovered and enjoyed by different audiences and future generations”, says Qais, “but also to dismiss any preconceived limitations of these instruments”.
