moor 1

(Caution: Spoilers Ahead!) My story is one of confusion, an eternally ambiguous tale about the events of my life and how they cumulated into making me a man desperate for change.

But then one fine morning (3:00 am to be exact) I found a little something called “Janoobi Khargosh” (Literally translated from Urdu, it means Southern Rabbit. Do follow them).

It takes the listener on an acoustic roller coaster ride through the orient, meandering through the blues and jazz laden west, all subtly and intricately blended together, a bit like a modern version of Ravi Shankar’s and Yehudi Menuhin’s ‘West Meets East.’ “ I can ...
