A few pictures of The Xavier Sisters during their musical career in Pakistan which began in 1966 and ended in 1975.
They performed mainly in Karachi at various venues, but also played in Lahore, Islamabad, Daharki, and were the first Karachi band to have an out-of-country contract (Teheran) in 1969.
During their career span, one of the sisters took a two-year hiatus to pursue further studies abroad, hence some pictures show just four of the five sisters.
In 1972, towards the latter part of their musical career, the sisters started to emigrate one at a time. Male musician friends replaced them until in 1975 when they finally disbanded as the rest of the family emigrated to Canada.
Our LMK Co-Founders Sabby Patrick and Bosco D’souza met up with two of the sisters recently in Canada.
