The New York-based music collective Found Sound Nation has a simple, but by no means small, mission: to unite people across borders through the making of music. The borders that separate us all can be national, ethnic, gender-based or tradition-based – but FSN, through various innovative initiatives, seeks always to open eyes and ears, not by eradicating differences but by exposing and combining different talents into something new, rich and strange. Their Dosti Music Project, a partnership between Found Sound Nation and the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, returned to Central Florida recently for a second stay at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, where 10 musicians from three countries (India, Pakistan and the United States) and many different practices (from traditional Sufi singing to electronic beatmaking to avant-garde jazz) have come together for three weeks of cross-cultural collaboration. What they create in their residency, they'll perform on a 10-day mini-tour from here to Nashville, transcending political and cultural divides while crossing geographical boundaries.
