Ari Roland Jazz Quartet (New York, New York), is inspired by jazz music from 1930’s through 1950’s also known as the "Golden Age of Jazz." The ensemble’s repertoire includes pieces by jazz legends such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Billy Holiday as well as their own critically acclaimed original compositions. They also direct international programs bringing young musicians from different communities together to play jazz.
Formed in 2001, Fuzon is an alternative rock band from Karachi, Pakistan. The Fuzon art insists on setting feelings above mere technique and creating an individualistic genre of mold breaking music. Born out of diverse western pop/rock and eastern classical influences, the trio fuses deeply meditative ragas with rock and jazz. The band encompasses hybrid styles of exquisite melodies and everlasting pop/ rock instruments. With three albums to their credit and many local and international collaborations, Fuzon has become the premier band of Pakistan.
