Pakistan Folk and Pop Instrumentals ’66-’76 [coll] – [Sublime Frequencies]

The region of the world we know as Pakistan had been part of almost every surrounding kingdom, greek, Indian, Persian, Tukic, Arab. Eventually, in 1947, a united Pakistan emerged from under british rule. With declared unity as an Islamic republic and adoption of a constitution, things were looking up. However a coup courtesy of Ayub Khan had stalled civilian rule. After it’s second war with India, dissent and political tensions grew. It was from 1972-77 that civilian rule had resumed under Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. It is from this era in Pakistani history that these folk and pop sounds were made. You hear on this record a decade of Pakistani sounds. These sounds are layered with sounds of the east- electric sitar, organs all made with the tranced psychadelia worshipped heavily by american students abrouad in the late 60s early 70s. Under the heavy guard of Eastern sounds you can catch a hint of other influences. Definitely not as crossover garage as the Psychadelic Aliens. Hear the sound of surf, garage, and Pakistani folk set along side pop dreams in eastern lands.
