Tiny Desert Concert: Qais Essar
And now for a Tiny Desert Concert. That’s when we bring local bands into the KJZZ studio to play a couple songs for us and talk a bit about the music. Today we hear from Qais Essar.
Qais is one of eight acts from Arizona playing in this year’s South by Southwest festival in Austin. He plays a unique fusion of Eastern and Western music using an Afghan stringed instrument called the rabab. Qais spoke about his instrument and distinct style.
If you’re in a band or know of one you’d like to hear on air, send us a note at [email protected].
