After many years, I reconnected with the great singer and guitarist Umer Piracha Рwe hang out and hear his stories and some tracks from their upcoming album.  The Pakistani/American singer and his band Falsa call themselves a 14th Century Sufi Chamber Fusion Ensemble and have developed a cult following.

Falsa will join NYC Radio Live for the Ragas Live Festival on October 6-7 at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn!

Falsa is Umer Piracha on Vocals, accompanied by Siddharth Ashokkumar on Carnatic Violin, Tom Deis and Paul Arendt on Guitars/Harmonium, Adam Hershberger on Trumpet, and Greg Foran on Percussion.

This episode was produced by Ashley Lehmann from the band All Night Drivers
