Hiss Golden Messenger/ Sounds of Kolachi


 

Hiss Golden Messenger is the creation of MC Taylor, a Californian who makes his home in North Carolina, where he relocated to pursue folklore studies. In his SMF debut, Taylor will be joined by a full band for two performances. PopMatters referred to the music of Hiss Golden Messenger as a kind of “back porch mysticism,” depicting the South “of antebellum ghosts, red clay, emptiness, complex Christian iconography and sonics that draw from folk-pop, roots rock, alt-country, white-man blues and pew-shaking gospel.”

 

Sounds of Kolachi is a 10-piece super group of vocalists and instrumentalists from Karachi, Pakistan blurring raga and Western harmony, counterpoint and South Asian melodic lines, all without losing the groove. South Asian classical instruments are on equal footing with electric guitar and a rock ‘n’ roll rhythm section. Guiding the journey, composer, theorist and singer Ahsan Bari spins outrageous, bluesy, modal riffs, boosted by a quartet of male and female voices.
