‘Circus in the Sky’ is a full representation of Usman Riaz‘s approach to music and storytelling.
It is a concept album which follows the story of the Lost Boy and his journey through life. Each piece is a progression through the innocence and playfulness of youth, the joys and sorrows of life as one gets older, spiritual awakening and finally death.
Apart from purely orchestral music the album also contains percussive guitar passages and piano pieces written and performed by Usman himself.
