MEHER & SHER ALI (PK)

Saturday 06.07.13 - 21:30 - Gloria

The 700-year-old music genre Qawwali is best described as Islamic gospel. Meher & Sher Ali belongs at the top end of the genre. Departing from the Sufi-tradition, in which music is a tool to approach the divine, the two Pakistanis sing and play their way towards the diverse heart of Allah. The Tabla drum and the harmonium along with the chanting vocals make up some of the characteristics of the music. The brothers and their ensemble achieve an ecstasy, which can make even the most unreligious into believers – in the music if nothing else.

Band schedule is ready in May

Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.

We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
