Mekaal Hasan – Fusing the Punjab to Rock and Jazz [Rolling Stone Article]

July 19, 2009

MekaalMekaal Hasan stands tall in the tight knit Pakistani rock scene which is eagerly awaiting Saptak, his band’s second album. EMI will release the album in India soon, so fans across the subcontinent will get a chance to judge how far the Mekaal Hasan Band has grown since its first album, Sampooran.

Hasan, who headlines his band, infuses Punjabi themes with Western Jazz influences. The band’s composition practically makes it a requirement. The lead singer is Javed Bashir, supported by the flutist Papu and by Hasan on guitar. Bashir and Papu come from a traditional folk and classical background, while Hasan brings Western jazz sensibilities – he was trained at Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Jal’s “Kaash Ye Pal” featured in “Three Idiots”

April 9, 2009

Jal’s song “Kaash Ye Pal” will be appearing in an Indian movie called “Three Idiots”. The movie is based on a novel by Chetan Bhagat called “Five point Someone”. The novel is highly recommended 🙂 I have read it and I loved it and so I hope that movie should be good too. Cast includes Amir Khan so expectations are higher.
