About the Project

In a new musical collaboration, The Pomegranate of Sistan (POS), Pakistani vocalist Zeb Bangash and American klezmer clarinetist Michael Winograd will explore how nationalism and religious orthodoxy conspire to create imagined histories stripped of cosmopolitan influence and intellectual reflection. POS is about transcending parochial limitations while acknowledging challenges for artists mediating across cultural divides.
