Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Pakistani Music Maestro Teams Up With Grammy-Winning Producer

In perhaps one of the most exciting developments in the global music sphere, a Pakistani classical music giant, Ustaad Naseeruddin Saami, will be collaborating on a multi-CD album with Ian Brennan, an Irish-American record producer who won a Grammy Award in 2011 for the Best World Music Album.

.
"[Saami] is a world class vocalist, both virtuosic and soulful at the same time...and that is a rare feat," stated Brennan, who has worked with musicians from Romania, Italy, Cambodia, Rwanda and Mali. "Beyond that, he has devised a new micro-modal system that is incredibly complex, but in no way feels complicated. It is so inherently musical, that through it, the majority of listeners could find access to new sonic vistas without realizing how far afield they have been led from standardized and rote systems."

.

The collaboration between Saami and Brennan was thanks to one of Saami’s own students, Ali Sethi, a young Pakistani singer from the city of Lahore who contacted the producer over email last summer after Sethi heard an album Brennan had recorded for the Malian folk band, Tinariwen.

Interestingly, both Sethi and fellow-student, Zeb Bangash, had been trying to bring Saami’s music to a wider audience for two years. “His tutelage had a transformative effect on our lives,” Bangash stated, “As his students, we couldn’t fathom why someone like him didn’t have albums for the world to experience his music.”

I always loved Nusrat Ali Fateh Khan's music. He also became more reknowed through collaboration with western artists such as Transglobal Underground and the guitarist Michael Brook. His collaboration with the latter 'Night Song' is very good, as is his work with traditional instrumentalists. I haven't checked this new guy out yet, but I'm looking toward to it.
