Michael Sylvester Rodrigues ~ I am proud to say as a Pakistani….no one believed me when I came here after that Bhutto saga Dec1979….. The American kids some grown ups too did not even know Pakistan existed or spoke English!!! forget western music……. and that we had some of the Best Musicians in Pakistan.
Ali Tim ~ Michael, all this info should be compiled and cataloged. I want to see all of this on the map . We had legendary musicians but no one ever bothered to showcase them or bring them to fore except Lyn, Beenish, Bosco (pardon me for missing names here). If LMK was not there i would have been an ignoramus myself ! I wrote music reviews for ages but i did not know any of this from 76 ……. hell …..and what eras have i missed ….sad! we should show it to the world that we existed and we still do.
This photograph was also used in the artwork for the Pakistan – Folk And Pop Instrumentals 1966-1976 compilation.
