SANDARAA is being hailed as "one of the most interesting and exciting things to happen in the New York music scene." This new musical collaboration explores a vast repertoire of South Asian musical traditions blended with the sounds and sensibilities of Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and New York. The band captivates audiences and fascinates listeners with their unique sound and inspired approach to musical and cultural synthesis. Sandaraa is co-fronted by one of Pakistan and Afghanistan's most loved vocalists, Zebunnisa (Zeb) Bangash, and Brooklyn's Klezmer clarinet virtuoso Michael Winograd. The pair became acquainted when, in the summer of 2012, Zeb invited Michael to join her band Zeb and Haniya for a concert at the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC. Following a successful concert, they imagined a group exploring the connections between Balochi, Afghani, Klezmer music and more, recruiting a diverse cast of fearless innovators to join them.
