Found Sound Nation, the acclaimed Brooklyn artist collective and production team, brings you their first worldwide album release, Travelers: Dosti Music Project. This album showcases a wide variety of musical traditions, ranging from Sufi singing fused with indie-rock tendencies to beatmaking and avant-garde jazz, and is the result of a unique cross-cultural collaboration.
Found Sound Nation's Dosti Music Project brought together inventive musicians from Pakistan, India, and the U.S. in the spring of 2015 and 2016 for a month-long residency and tour. Artists included Pakistani experimental electronic artist Slowspin, Virginia born singer/songwriter Abakis and multi-instrumentalist Danish Khawaja (Fat Bird). During the residency the artists collaboratively wrote, recorded and performed original music while reinventing traditional music, and developing initiatives that would make a positive impact on their communities. The album also reflects its origin’s namesake -- Dosti, meaning friendship in both Urdu and Hindi -- and a statement to transcend political and cultural barriers through cross-cultural musical collaboration.
