Arieb & The Shamrock Rovers reunion concert

Ariebs musical journey started as a child when he discovered that when he expressed himself vocally, people would pay attention. He picked up the guitar in his teens as a simple acoustic accompaniment for his voice. At the age of 19 he went off to Croatia and spent the next 13 years of his life there. He was one of the founders of the band Shamrock Rovers with whom he recorded two albums of a unique interpretation of Celtic music. Finally in 2005 he returned to Pakistan in order to immerse himself in the local music. Always nurturing a love for poets of Sufi and humanist literature, Arieb has now found an expression that he can claim as his own and recorded an album in Karachi.
