About Babar Luck

Babar Luck is an enigma.
He is something that is a multicultural mix he calls himself a Britishtaanee a Jamaicanstaanee a Africanstaanee and naturally a worldcitizen.

Babar was born in Pakisthan (Quetta)and came to uk when he was 8 years of age raised by a single mother of devout Muslim faith and educated principles.

He fell in love with all forms of music from teenage years. Growing upp in poor working class area Canning Town/east end of London, he chose to mix with and was taken under the wing of Africans Jamaicans and white working class communities and traveller communities.

He was a bassist songwriter/shouter in a Electric alternativ genra -crossing uk based band called King Prawn/they toured extensively through out europe/japan/ for ten years 1992-2002 they were a very political and underground. In his time with King Prawn they recorded 4 albums 7 eps and 2 videos and 1 live dvd. The views expressed by Babar in those times have changed. As life and time makes one wiser more openminded more compassionate.

After those years Babar has established himself as solo artist having released 15 albums in a variety of guises.

There are  8 releases of babar luck music/and his wide variety of bands on Bandcamp.com.

That money paid via paypal goes to Babar -Like most modern musicians he admits there are vast aray of music available made by him and his bands -which is FREE to download.Most audiences/well meaning people  are not aware that the digital downloads elsewhere  DONT go to the musicians or their families.  Babar encourages listheners to be aware of where that money goes  -it does NOT go to the maker of the music or his loved ones or his future objectives-

Babar future objectives are to be able to make more music support his family AND pay those who lovingly and honestly work with him.


He has d.i.y ethic BUT he would admit he has been blessed to be looked after by many peoples. He has toured all over Europe Australia  Japan.

He has a wonderful folk band called The Babar Luck world citizen folk band they have recorded 2 albums…about to record their 3rd.  Both cds are available via Bandcamp

He also has a electric punk/rock band called Eastendtrinity
they have released 3 albums 2 on itunes and one on Amazon ….about to finish their 4th http://www.eastendtrinity.co.uk

The common theme throughout is his love for all humanity which can be interprated by those who dont listhen to the tx/words as “wishy washy modern liberalism”.

What his words and ideas are about is about equality and justice for all the children on this earth. That is a “mustice”. Protection of mother earth. A more sharing and caring future for all the children on this earth.

Humans have to protect themselves.  In a world where the bullies and leaders walk hand in hand. This makes for some very harsh decisions. Compassion forgiveness empathy are valueable traits and they are being eroded and belittled. This is a sad state of being. As a creativ he feels it is his duty to highlight excite and talk about issues that matter in this world. The greater good. collective responsibilty.

This is common thread in many genras but Babar luck does it with bite, due to he feels a love of all humanity and having to mix with the diversity of London metropolis. As well as traveling most of this world. Being part of world migrancy and a minority in a modern western society.

Whether with his bands or solo  babars live shows are truly a amazing experience.
Thats why he has survived in the underground and overground music circuit.
Babar can go from a eight minute kawaalee to a  2 minute punk song then to a country tinged ballad.
There is no one in the music idustry who can do what Babar does. His music is of its time and Timeless.
