Lahooti Live Sessions
If you’re looking for soulful, indigenous, folk magic and sounds of the Indus, look no further than Lahooti Live Sessions. A brainchild of Sketches’ Saif Samejo, it is the one place where you can discover miraculous folk music. So far, two beautiful seasons have taken place and both of them will have you riveted.
Recorded in Jamshoro, Sindh, the show aims to preserve the sounds and instruments of Sindhi folk and beyond. In just a few years, Lahooti Live Sessions has grown into the premier music show for those looking for sounds of the soil.
A new season is on the cards. But, in the meantime, you can check out artists like Shakoor Faqeer, Jay Raam Jogi, Ali Muhammad, Fakir Zulfiqar, Mai Dhai, Arieb Azhar, Bell, Feroz Roonjho and many, many others.
