Artist

CURATOR:
LOCATION:Portland, OR
Labels:

Ilyas Ahmed was born in Pakistan.  He grew up in Jersey, and then spent some time in Seattle and Minnesota before settling in Portland. The man’s music is as eclectic as his many hometowns. Citing Captain Beefheart, John Coltrane, Sun Ra, Ravi Shankar, Sandy Bull, Fred McDowell, and Ghost as teenage influences, Ilyas creates experimental psych-folk infused with instrumental drones, thoughtful and wandering acoustic guitar musings, and vocal howlings.
