Strings is the band whom every Pakistani music lover listens and appreciate.The band is an old hand in cheering the crowd, and making them jump and sing along , when it comes to concerts.Â Strings’ most remarkable achievement is that they have kept the Rock part of Music Genre distinguished from the Pop Genre in their work.
Let’s talk about the recent change in the band. Qaiser Zain-Ul-Abedin, the veteran drummer has left the Strings. He had been “Stringed” with the Strings for the past 7 or 8 years. That’s a lot of time, I mean Pakistani bands split up just after release of their very first piece of work. And, YES, Qaiser is the same drummer whose Kick Ass “DRUM-SOLO“ uploaded couple a days ago, which he performed in a Karavan’s Gig and which surely made us to do the “HEAD BANGING” thing. But Its all over for now we guess, as Â he is leaving the country and settling in America probably where he would be playing with the GORAS (following Faraz Anwar’s Steps may be).
The Replacement: AAHAD NAYANI
Aahad Nayani has joined the Strings now (not officially revealed though). Nayani is probably considered one of the top most drummers in Pakistan. He has the “THING“. The Indus Valley School of Arts and Architecture (IVSAA) organised a musical night this Saturday which featured performances by up and coming bands leading up to a two-hour show by Strings. Nayani accompained the Strings in the Gig. At the end of the show Maqssod exclaimed, “It was very energising to perform with such a responsive crowd but a special thanks to our young drummer, Aahad Nayani, because of whom our live sound has become really good.”
A good substitute to Qaiser? I hope Strings don’t have to miss him!
