Message from Basim Usmani:
The banks of Lake Ontario will turn red on March 11th. The Kominas return to the Great White North for Canadian Music Week 2010. They’d previously annexed the T-Dot at the El Mocambo following the premiere of the documentary TAQWACORE: The Birth of Punk Islam (taqwacore.com) last November. These Boston-based taqwa-punks sliced through the United states, slaughtering the infidels of the north-east, arriving at the pagan Sundance Film Festival – where the fiction-film adaptation of Michael Mummahad Knight’s The Taqwacores was screened (www.mtv.com/videos/movie-trailers/471188/the-taqwacores.html)
The Kominas are eager to crush idolators at the REVIVAL BAR on Saturday March 11th with their blend of Punk, Qawwali, Ska and Bhangra (a.k.a. Skawunkara), with help of the Tabla Guy – Gurpreet Singh.
We are eager to take interviews, offer our cd for reviews, and revel in all the media attention you can give us. Or die!
