THE SKETCHES! The Sketches Jamshoro THE SKETCHES (Music Band) is a Pioneer of Sufi Folk Rock from Jamshoro, Sindh, Pakistan, created by young musician Saif Samejo. “Sindhi melody is very charming; there is enormous flexibility of words” says Saif Samejo. There motherland has always been a major inspiration which is portrayed in their work. The love for their language and culture is aimed to bring back the departed old identity and to produce quality work in order to sensitize the world in general and the youth in specific about the grace of Sindhi language. Their first album ‘Dastkari’ meaning ‘one’s own creation’ was released in 2010 with the Folk/Sufi/Rock songs in Sindhi, Saraiki and Urdu bearing a wide range of messages promoting peace, a rich cultural heritage, freedom of expression and love. The music created by The Sketches has proved the fact that “Music has no language”, despite the fact that different languages have been used in their songs listeners from different age groups and backgrounds have appreciated each flavor that come out. The music blends so perfectly, creating novel symphonies that capture the soul. Contradictory to the trend, The Sketches always believed in “being original” and in the era of commercial music where other artists served as seasonal birds they remained unswerving and kept Sufi music alive. This is the foremost reason that within the first year ‘The Sketches’ was acknowledged by various front line magazines of Pakistan including Dawn, The News, Mag-the weekly, Hum say, Kawish and others. The band was reported in Pakistan’s biggest news channel Geo TV for promoting peace through their music video ‘Maujood’. Its remarkable contribution on ‘Raat’ (Folk tale of Sindh) was admitted internationally and they appeared on BBC- London (radio). They’ve performed the song ‘Mandh’ at Pakistan's most popular music show Coke Studio on 3 July 2011. "Nind Nashe Vich" and "Mein Sufi Hoon" top The Sketches chart list too. Recent collaboration of Jono Manson with The Sketches in a project "Khahori" is a breakthrough that's a history itself. Its a first ever international collaboration in sindhi music.Sindhi language is very rich. "Shah Latif’s poetry is not limited within a particular border and with the vocals of Jono Manson, this amalgamation would expand far beyond. This isn’t going to be the joint venture of two languages only, but also a course of acceptance of diversity and respect for different cultures" - Saif Samejo Team Sketches has been reformed in December 2013 and some new videos and international tours are in plan.
