New Orchestra Braadri Broadcast: Hamza Jafri To Bring Multiple Pakistani Artists Together
“Pakistan has such rich musical traditions from its provinces. It would be amazing to create a fusion between them, such as mixing Punjabi folk with Balochi, Sindhi with Urdu, Pashto with Shina, and so on.” Hamza says.
According to Hamza this has never been experimented before because there isn't much interaction between ethnicities. He believes that when it comes to different communities, people are more conservative.
The Braadri Broadcast is an acoustic, cross-ethnic 15-piece orchestra that plays 10 original songs in 10 different languages spoken across Pakistan — Urdu, Sindhi, Punjabi, Balochi, Pashto, Seraiki, Marwaari, Hindko, Brushaski and Shina
The composer and music director is Akram Raja, the videos have been produced by Rola, audio recorded by Bilal Nasir Khan and costumes designed by Yousuf Bashir Qureshi. Hamza's wife, theatre director Nida Butt with whom he collaborated on music productions is the creative director of the project.
