Mole and Basheer & the Pied Pipers - Live and Loud

Wires, lights, laptops and controllers filled the MAD school this past weekend as Karachi’s home brewed experimental acts Mole and Basheer & the Pied Pipers took stage. The audience was small but a dedicated bunch of ears were eagerly perched on their behinds as the two bands exhaled a tornado of sounds on to the eager crowd. Basheer’s off-time beat driven ambient soundscapes were welcomed by the room and its captivated audience. Soon followed Mole, with a reduced and more compact line up as the other band members were out of town, but they still managed to deliver a wall of drowned out melodies, screams, chants and whispers while a lush synth cushionined the echoes along the way.

Images from the scene:


It’s gigs like these that reinstates that sense of culture and evolution of a new wave of artists that are slowly unearthing beneath this artistically suppressed region. This series of gigs continues to the coming weekend as the young guitar virtuoso Usman Riaz takes stage with two buzzing local independent acts Jumbo Jutt and //orangenoise.

Here are a few glimpses of what went down at the MAD school last Saturday:
