The audio file for this show will be here soon and will remain available till 2016 August 30, 01:00 UTC. **Sorry, folks. It seems that the station's audio archiving system failed and the program was not recorded. Hopefully this will not happen next time.**

A critique of Coke Studio's first episode in its 9th season is posted here. Read it and see if you agree with what the critic has to say about the Naseebo Lal/Umair Jaswal song that I played for you. Let me know what you think.

I'll be in the air next on September 05.

The Kominas will be in concert at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on:

Monday, August 08, 2016; doors open at 7:00 pm.






From the Kominas' promotional material:


"The Kominas are a situationalist punk band, a la Sex Pistols, modeling themselves after punk bands in 1977 who made careers out of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Much like the Pistols’ Anarchy in the UK or God Save the Queen, The Kominas wrote songs like “Sharia Law in the USA” or “No one’s gonna honor kill my baby but me.”

The band launched their latest album “Stereotype” to much critical acclaim in 2015, and premiered a thought-provoking music video tackling xenophobia for the single “See Something, Say Something” in conjunction with NPR Music. They also reworked a classic Pakistani burlesque tune by Noor Jehan into the theme song for the upcoming documentary Zunn: Showgirls of Pakistan." 
The band was also featured in the documentary Taqwacore about the progression of the Muslim punk scene.

The Kominas also covered a song, Manji de vich daang, by Naseebo Lal who had a case registered against her in Pakistan in 2009 for singing "obscene" songs. An original version of the song can be found here.





Tracks from the Kominas' four albums, including the ones played on this show, may be streamed (free) or downloaded (for a low price) from the links below. Note that the music downloads are available in MP3 format as well as in uncompressed formats such as FLAC and others.

Stereotype (2015)
Kominas (2011)
Escape to Blackout Beach (2010)
Wild Nights in Guantanamo Bay (2008)

Music from other gigs by Basim and Sunny is available as below:

You Got Me (All Y'All, 2012)
Chai (Sunny Ali & the Kid, 2012)


The Kominas are touring from July 30 to September 01, 2016; 21 shows, from Boston via New York to LA and back to DC. It's grueling; show them some love.
