What Might Have Been

30 January 2020, 6.30pm - 8pm

New Art Exchange

Music in 1960s Pakistan was a mix of traditional tunes and external genres including American pop and rock, generating a multicultural and niche music scene. Bands such as The Panthers and The Fore Thoughts are examples of this polyglot generation which proposed alternative possibilities. Joined by Pakistan-born artist Faiza Butt and Brummie Pakistani Tasawar Bashir, this session explores some of the key tracks of that era, while discussing the development of political and cultural contexts of the time.
