Falsa

14th Century Sufi Chamber Fusion Ensemble

14th century Sufi music, described as a "cure for alienation" and one that's "not about means to ends but about meaning and transcendence". The effect of listening to Falsa is to be transported both inwards and across centuries of joys, sorrows and longings.

Umer Piracha on Vocals, accompanied by Siddharth Ashokkumar on Carnatic Violin, Tom Deis and Paul Arendt on Guitars/Harmonium, Adam Hershberger on Trumpet, and Greg Foran on Percussion. To listen, please Click Here.

Our debut album will be available this Summer 2018! Click Here to stay updated!

Falsa is thrilled to welcome Hartford Hot Several Brass Band to Franky Bradley's mid-week dance party!
"Hartford needed a funky band to bring brass, ruckus, and joy to all the parties. In 2012, we set out to be that band. You remember how in the intro to The A-Team it said, "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire ... THE A-TEAM"? We're pretty much like that, provided that the problem you have is a lack of brass and ruckus!"

Described as "the cure for alienation" and "music that's not about means to ends but about meaning and transcendence," Falsa is an amazing musical experience rooted in 14th century Sufi music. The effect of listening to Falsa is to be transported both inwards and across centuries of joys, sorrows and longings.
