Pakistan: Rock and the Underground

Categories: South Asia, Pakistan, Music

Asma covers the rock scene in Islamabad [1]. Watch out for the take on underground rock. “Here, bands remain underground only because financial constraints, lack of contacts, sponsorships and media attention, and discouragement from parents cause them to remain smothered down there. Most Western UG bands prefer remaining proudly unheard of by the larger audience; here, UG bands long for popularity and success.”
