Canadian Indo-Pak band naQsh certainly know how to entertain a crowd, which was evident at the launch party of their debut album ‘Saptak’. The event, named ISHQ, was hosted by A-Town at The Fox Cabaret, Vancouver, Canada on 11th June’15. The party, with ‘love’ as its main theme, definitely had romance in the air with the band performing their original singles along with covers of several well-known classic Bollywood numbers. The exclusive event was organized to officially launch naQsh’s debut album Saptak, which was made available a couple of days ago for downloading internationally on platforms such as iTunes and Taazi.com. The album has been very well received by South Asian music critics worldwide; while the first official music video Pagli went on to climb several charts.
The band brought the night to life while performing an assortment of hits including covers of Bollywood songs such as Kisi Roz Un Se, Sun Raha Hai Na Tu, Teri Deewani, Mitwa, Har Kisi Ko alongside their original songs Megha, Kaka and Pagli with ecstatic fans jiving along. The event was a huge success, which was apparent from the standing ovation naQsh received from a jam-packed venue.
Overjoyed by the response naQsh received at the event, lead vocalist Daksh Kubba stated “This event raised the bar for us. The two main comments we got from people were – 1. They lost their voice singing with us nonstop. 2. They had tears in their eyes. It was truly a very emotional event filled with so much joy and turned out to be our best performance yet. The response that we received from the crowd was very humbling”.
