Wali Orakzai, the lead vocalist of Yasir and Jawad, has left the band and singing-career to pursue a career in PMA (Pakistan Military Academy). “I am joining the Pakistan Military Academy because, first I have to think of my future, and then about music,” said Wali in an interview with Express Tribune.
However, Wali has expressed desires on coming back in to the singing arena when returning back from the PMA course and the band itself isn’t calling it a break-up. “While Wali will be at military school, we will record all the instruments and leave his parts. As soon as he gets a break, he will come and record his vocals,” says Jawad, who plays guitars in this band, with Yasir on the traditional rabab.
While Wali will look forward to his commitments in PMA, Yasir and Jawad will look to find an alternative for live shows, which Jawad thinks is not an easy task as Wali had huge command on Pashto.
It is clear that the trio of Yasir and Jawad are going a through a rough patch, and probably an unlucky phase, of their career but the good thing is that the band is planning to release their upcoming song with a video.
