Come hail or high water, Karachi Eat 2017 has been rescheduled to take place next weekend and the fabulous lineup of six music acts will unleash upon gluttonous foodies, keeping music alive in the city by the sea. Lahore will be treated to Lahore Eat next month and until then, the cultural city will have some music to feed its souls.
A case in point: Noori brothers. Though they recently emerged at the Miss Veet finale, it’s their live music reputation that has made them so formidable. This past weekend, they took the stage at a show at Lums University in Lahore and as usual captivated all those who were present. Singing hits like ‘Paar Chanaa De’ and ‘Saari Raat Jaga’ during their set, Noori rocked it out brilliantly.
And this live music buzz is not over just yet. After Salt Arts joined hands with artists like Ali Hamza’s solo outfit, Sanwal plus Jimmy Khan and many others in 2016, it looks like their innovatively-designed shows will continue into 2017.
While Natasha Humera Ejaz takes the stage with her band as part of the Salt Arts Soiree 8, Salt Soiree 9 has been announced as well. Featuring the Ahsan Bari South Asia Ensemble, it is scheduled to take place on January 25 at Cotie Roti in Karachi and will see Bari play alongside Omran Shafique, Saif Abbas Rizwan, Shams Ul Arifeen and Rahat Ali.
