The Rubab instrument that Danny brought from his previous home in Pakistan is, unfortunately, a dying art form. Ancient melodies of the country’s past have seemingly been forgotten. Over the past 15 years, he has been on a mission to create a fresh, blending fusion of modern music with ancient South Asian instruments. He graduated with a Bachelors in Musicology from the National College of Arts, Pakistan. Danny moved to the UK for one specific purpose, which is to showcase this spectacular Rubab through his style of a fusion between the sounds of the East and West. The music definitely speaks for itself, as the audience is usually stunned by the calm and exciting harmonics of this instrument.
