"1001 Ways – Music Review"

What an interesting collage of musical sounds… 1001 Ways offers up a dish of digital vibes that oddly touched me in a hell of a funky and disturbing way. Harmonica’s digital drum beats, spastic keyboards and out there vocals with enough synthetic appeal to make one wonder how it all comes together.
A vibe like no other I’ve heard in a long time, these cats offer listeners a journey through an upbeat rave and roll right into a laid back Sade’ish mellow jazz movement with flutes and a mystical radio voice to move us through the oceans of musical madness…
All in all 1001 Ways is just that… 1001 Ways to move, motivate, mellow, magnetize and when you least expect it – blast into your musical mind.
Cool to a fault, these cats are not strangers to great press having received international media coverage on BBC, the New York Post, London to Night, Forbes TV, Asian Voice, India Digest, Culture Times, Pakistan TV, Sirus Radio and they’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working with international artists like: Farafina (Real World), Fathy Salama (producer of “Egypt” for Youssou NÕDour), Omega III (producer of Madonna…), Gypsy Kings, Tony Scott, Buddy Miles, Calvin Owens and more…
Touring the world with their multi-media program “Ghandi” 1001 Ways had the honor of launching The Gandhi Tour at the 10th Earthdance hub event in California on September 15th 2006 with the special guest speaker Dr. Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.
Celebrating Gandhi’s 100 Years of Nonviolence Movement.
Hard working and musically innovative to a fault, 1001 Ways is progressively making their musically golden path in the international independent music world. - The Music biz buzz

"Fighting a political deluge"

by BEENISH AHMAD

There has never been a festival where music was not the main ingredient of festivities. In the music played at the Rafi Peer Art Festival, one man's music touched a chord with everyone on the opening night. The music was no ordinary one. Nor was the instrument. Strumming the strings of his classical violin was Tobias Huber, a violinist of 1001 ways group from Switzerland. Tobias takes his music as evolved from different roots of music coming from different continents. He comes from one of very eminent music families of Switzerland. He calls himself a great fan of folk music. Tobias brings a message of hope and peace to all people across the ethnic boundaries. While talking to the Nation plus he said, 'The Rafi Peer Art Festival has given a chance to the people of various cultural backgrounds to come together and celebrate peace through music, dance and drama.'
Last year, Tobias, along with his group, came to Pakistan to perform at the Rafi Peer Art Festival. They had received a great deal of applause for their performance. Building on the success of his previous concert here, he has once again jazzed the audience with his unique style of playing violin. He said the situations were a bit different and difficult. The Swiss state government did not like the idea of letting the 1001 Ways group going and performing in Pakistan due to 'the false impression' laid in the minds of Swiss state government officials. 'But I had the support of my city government and they helped me come and perform here,' told Tobias to Nation plus. On the question that how did like performing here, Tobias told, 'I like it here because this is a place where we can experience the exchange of cultures. We must open up our consciousness and give way to dialogue to overcome the catastrophe, whether the catastrophe is in form of cultural devastation or political deluge. And I feel proud of fighting for coming here.
