The Mekaal Hasan Band is a jazz/rock fusion band from Pakistan, playing a unique style of music which draws from eastern and western influences to create a blend of sounds deeply rooted in eastern classical styles and a jazz-rock feel reminiscent of the 70's. The band was formed in 2001 under guitarist and composer Mekaal Hasan, initially starting with a collaboration with renowned percussionist Pete Lockett. The efforts received critical and public acclaim as a breakthrough style of fusion music. Mekaal decided to continue writing music along similar lines and formed a full time band which released its debut album 'Sampooran' in 2004.

Sampooran features the artistry of artists from Pakistan and abroad, with stunning performances by the UK's Pete Lockett on drums and multipercussion along with bass sensation Michael Mondesir. Pakistan's own drum legend, Gumby, makes his mark as guest artist on the opening four tracks on the record. With fellow bandmates Javed Bashir on vocals, Mohammad Ahsan Papu on flute and Sameer Ahmed on bass, The Mekaal Hasan Band is continuing to explore this exciting blend of East and West, in a series of live performances that are drawing appreciative fans in large numbers.
