About suroor Band :
Suroor comprises of two polished musicians from entirely different backgrounds whereas it was produced by veteran producer faizi
Kamran Bari aka Kami (Pop Vocals),
Muhammad Ali (Classical Vocals),
Faizi invited Ali to his studio to start some new projects as he always admired Ali’s vocals and it was while working there that Ali came across Kami who was also doing his solo music album in the studio. Faizi and Kami asked Ali to do backing vocals and alaap on kami’s track ‘Pyar To Hona He Hae’. Later on ali haider and najam sheraz made a guest appearance in the video of the song which was directed by Jalal.The song was a smash hit and bagged all the awards in 2006 for the best pop song and best debut song and that is when kami decided to move ahead with Suroor.The song “pyar to hona he hae” continued its story of success when it was picked up by Rohit shetty and ajay devgan for their 2008 bollywood movie “Sunday” featuring ajay devgan, ayesha takia, arshad warsi and Irfan khan.
For Kami, music has always been a passion. He faced opposition at home too, his only supporter in the family was his uncle, famous actor Jamshed Ansari. Before being part of Suroor, Kami was a solo artist and had launched two videos some years back. His musical training started after he formed Suroor and he is training from a master in the game- Ali and has great respect and admiration for his colleague.
Kami is running his own ad agency and belongs to a business family but he always wanted to be a singer since his childhood, he even formed a band Khwab when he was studying at Commerce College years back. Faizi has been in the music industry for the past 15 years and his first serious project was ‘Babiya’ by Sajjad Ali back in 1993 which was a big hit.
Suroor have released their debut album after winning awards for the title track ‘Pyar Tou Hona He Hae’. Their hit single was recognized as the Best Debut and Best Pop track at different award ceremonies in Pakistan and the band has now released their debut album by the name of their award winning number.
Suroor’s music is a pop classical fusion and even in the western techno numbers, a twinge of classical is retained to keep the essence of the band alive.
Kami’s words… “If our flavour isn’t eminent then there is no difference between us and the other bands, I guess our music sounds completely different from other pop bands because of the odd yet striking fusion it creates and also because we have two vocalists singing their own strengths as opposed to having one lead vocalist.”
Pyaar To Hona Hi Hai was written by Kamran Bari, he and Mohammed Ali are an excellent match to sing the best track on the album. The song begins with acoustic guitar and when violins are added into the mix along with Kamran Bari’s smooth voice you know you are going to love listening to it. There are some beautiful harmonies and the melody just flows and takes you to a wonderful, in-love place. There is also a remix of this wonderful song.
