Red Bull Music Academy, a global institution committed to fostering creativity in music, conducted an Info Session aimed at bringing the local music scene closer to the Academy.
Hosted by the Academy team member Nick Dwyer, the Info Session kicked-off with Dwyer sharing insights and
forgotten tales from over a decade of being involved in Red Bull Music Academy’s worldwide activities.
The Info Session took place in the metropolis of ‘Lahore’ at the famous Haveli Barood Khana.
Musicians had flown in to Lahore from different parts of the country to attend the Info Session.
‘I am really excited to be here in Lahore for the inaugural session. The Academy has grown tremendously in the last five years. We are having these sessions all around the world to help musicians understand how being associated with the Academy can benefit them (musicians)’ said Nick Dwyer on hosting the first Red Bull Music Academy Info Session in Pakistan.
While mentioning about the local Academy Alumni Nick Dwyer said, ‘Over the course of last ten years there have been now four participants from Pakistan including SMAX, Tollcrane and Noahs Heark’.
Showering heap of praises on Pakistani musicians he said, ‘People are interested in knowing about the music scene in Pakistan. They rarely get an opportunity to mingle with musicians and artists from this part of the world and the ones who participated did very well. The world should know that some very cool stuff is happening in Pakistan.’
