Chang in the garden

The music of Sindh is something I’d never really much come across before. But sitting in the garden at Kuch Khaas with a cup of tea and the warm winter sunshine there was something rather mesmerising or almost hypnotic about the sound of the chang – or Jew’s harp – as it waxed and waned in a sort of buzzy fashion…

There was plenty of other music on Saturday, but the real show stealer for me was the Alghoza player Akbar Khamisu Khan. Extraordinary stuff and the sort of trance music that I think I could get into. Even without a pint of spiced cider
