AMARRASS NIGHTS at SUNDER NURSERY

Amarrass Nights is back in 2020! After a long hiatus, we are thrilled to announce that we have a new, beautiful venue to host our monthly series of music, arts and culture events in the capital. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Sunder Nursery is a 16th century heritage park - Delhi's first arboretum - restored and renovated by the Archeological Society of India and the Aga Khan Foundation. Our first concert of the year is made even more special with the introduction of two new artist groups to the Amarrass Records roster: brothers Ghewar & Firoze and the next generation of qawwali singers Rehmat-e-Nusrat

 

Ghewar & Firoze, sons of the late Padma Shri Sakar Khan, are masters of the kamaicha and the dholak respectively. Accomplished musicians and members of the Grammy Artist Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt's Desert Slide Project, the brothers have a long history of performing at some of the most important stages across the world, including at Jodhpur's RIFF, Fez Festival in Morocco and more. They also feature on the album 'At Home: Sakar Khan' (5 Stars, 'Top of the World' - Songlines).

Rehmat-e-Nusrat are a sextet of young musicians from Uttarakhand bringing a fresh new perspective to the timeless tradition of qawwali music. The group presents qawwalis by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Sufiyana kalaams by the great poets Amir Khusrao, Meera Bai, Baba Bulleh Shah, Kabir bhajans, and original compositions.

Date: 11 JANUARY, 2020 (Saturday)

Time: 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Venue: SUNDER NURSERY AMPHITHEATER, NEW DELHI

VINYL REVIVAL IN INDIA

Amarrass establishes the first record cutting facility in India in the 21st Century!

We are thrilled to set up a new production facility in Gurgaon, India, where we have been busy over the Record Store Day 2017 weekend, cutting our first set of records! Analog remastered albums by Barmer Boys, Lakha Khan and the Palestinian-American band Painted Caves were released at a 'Vinyl Revival' launch party on the 28th of April at Lodi-The Garden Restaurant in Delhi, and we plan to follow with a series of live concert recordings of Barmer Boys with Vieux Farka Tourè and Bombino from the Amarrass Desert Music Festival in 2011/2012.

While the initial focus and production will be on the Amarrass catalogue, and artists on the label, we hope to work with other artists in India (and elsewhere) to cut dubplates, limited edition copies of LPs/EPs and singles. Each Amarrass record is individually hand-cut on precision-crafted machinery imported from Germany and assembled here in India. All the album artwork and jacket design is also done in-house at Amarrass.
Vinyl finally enables us to present our archive of field recordings, live concerts and studio sessions in high fidelity - bringing the listener closer to the natural sound captured in the recordings sessions.

 

Barmer Boys (Kesariya Balm), Lakha Khan's 'At Home' sessions, and Painted Caves self-titled debut album are now available in LP format at our online store, and small batches will be available at online retailers and physical stores. 

The Hindustan Times came over to visit our new facility. Read the story here, and catch a glimpse of the production process in the video below.
