Sufi Step – Ashraf Sharif and Victor Marek in concert
Viktor Marek and Ashraf Sharif Khan in concert – Event date: 13th November, 2016 at the German General Consulate
Viktor Marek, also known as “The carpet”, is a musician and the manager of the “Golden Poodle Club” in Hamburg. Marek is a master of the small details in music: from blinking drum computers and samplers he can make music in no time. He pines in a rhythm with his voice.
Ashraf Sharif Khan is the son of the Asian sitar master Ustad Muhammad Sharif Khan Poonchwala. His music combines an astounding technical proficiency with an accomplished artist’s striving for perfection in musical expression. The melodic beauty of his style, accentuated by his dynamic rhythmic development and virtuoso technique provide an unforgettable musical experience for longtime aficionados of South Asian music and for newcomers alike. His music transcends regional boundaries, and is accessible to all. It is universal in scope.
The Viktor Marek-Ashraf Sharif Khan sound is something beyond 2Step and Dubstep, it is a sawtooth-synth-monster, whipped by the strings of the 12-finger Sitar-player, dancecendental – you can call something like Sufi-Step.
