Indus Music was created in 2009 and is considered to be one of the very few influential arts organisations established to capture melody, acoustic harmony and rhythms from around the world. Over the period of ten years it has worked with a variety of genres, Western and Indian classical, Jazz, World Music & Dance.
From our beginning in 2009 until 2014, we have produced a 26-album catalogue with world-class musicians – which included covers of some iconic Jazz Standards and Bossa Nova tracks. These include Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” arranged with Indian instruments – sitar, sarod, sarangi, tabla, dholak and a string section, attracting over 1.25 Million views on YouTube
The most recently featured album is “Jazz And All That’, dedicated to the memory of Dave Brubeck it showcased the best of East meets West, and includes jazz standards as well as derivative tracks.
Indus also specialises in the fields of label management, consultancy, recording, and music publishing and intellectual property rights. It currently holds over several hundred hours of music and film footage in its archive.
We have been involved in touring the Jazz band Sachal Jazz Ensemble in many parts of the world, including the USA, Canada, France, India, Pakistan, Japan, Malaysia and other places. We have been instrumental in inspiring an acclaimed film on the Sachal Jazz Ensemble, entitled ‘Song of Lahore’.
