On performing at Riot Studios band member Ali Riaz said, “We were rehearsing and recording parts of our debut album during the previous six days at Farhad Humayun’s Riot Studios, so performing a show there on our seventh day was relaxing and nothing new. The show was skilfully organised by Uzma Rao who did an amazing job of inviting people, setting the ambience and hosting the show. Kudos to the both of them!” On the response of the audience , Ali further added, “During the show, seeing the audience respond after hearing an amalgamation of musicians from not only a Jazz, Hip Hop or North Indian Classical music background but also an international background was beautiful. Seeing certain people enter a trance like groove when we were playing was humbling. We got a chance to socialise with the crowd at the after party and it was great talking to people in Lahore with an appreciation for instrumental and jazz music.” Jaubi’s musical genre ranges from Indian classical to jazz infusing rhythms from across the world to create music for global audiences.
