In Pakistan, amidst political turmoil, economic challenges and social identity crisis, musicians and instrument craftsmen strive to survive and sustain their art while navigating changing social taboos around their profession. Indus Blues showcases the unique performances of these rarely seen musical instruments, from their last remaining maestros and takes the audience on a journey throughout the landscape of Pakistan from the northern Karakoram mountains to the southern coastline.
Screening and Discussion with the director, Jawad Sharif. Refreshments provided!
Sponsored by SASA and MSU in collaboration with the Art Department, the Davis Center, the Lecture Committee, the Class of ’46 Memorial Fund for World Brotherhood, the Asian Studies Program, and the Departments of History, and Anthropology and Sociology.
