Chand Tarra Orchestra is, as best described by Patari, a Karachi based superband, featuring Babar Sheikh on bass, Omran Shafique and Kashan Admani on guitars, Gumby on drums and Sherry Raza on the vocals. An interview which took a couple of weeks to nail down, but boy was it worth it. If you know anything about music in Pakistan, you know that these guys are hands down some of the best musicians, infact legends of Pakistani music scene. We sat down with them to discuss their new songs, musical journey, band history, what the future holds and their views on music in. We asked alot of community questions and found out some rather interesting answers.
As expected our talk weaved in and out of topics and covered a plethora of subject matters. Some new, exclusive announcements were made in regards to their upcoming songs, insightful advice for budding instrument players and musicians was given and we eventually discussed a bit of Coke Studio and Pakistani music scene. This felt less of an interview and more of a session with friends, and maybe that was the beauty of it. The humble and honest nature of it all struck a chord with me.
Listen, enjoy, comment and share !
