I still remember we all were super excited when we listened to it. Releasing the video has not only reminded me of that time but has renewed that excitement and the more importantly, such a positive response from our fans has motivated us to keep making meaningful music”.
naQsh has been creating socially relevant and soul-stirring music since 2007.Their eclectic sound comes from the band’s diverse background and experiences. The Vancouver-based band members originate from Pakistan and India. Their inspirations range from artists such as Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, to Pink Floyd, Led Zeplin, and U2. naQsh epitomizes the depth of their roots, communicated in moody rock and West Coast Canadian style. “Through our music we hope to touch hearts, inspire and create spaces for people to come together and be united in humility and love.” – Daksh
