“Strings” ecstatic over their latest song “Mein Tou Dekhoonga”
Internationally acclaimed Pop-cum-rock Pakistani band “Strings” lead vocalist and guitarist, Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood, have spoken of their delight on the mounting popularity of their latest song “Mein Tou Dekhoonga”.
In an exclusive interview, Faisal and Bilal revealed that they were always interested portraying nationalism in their songs and admitted that they were overwhelmed by the terrific response from the audience on their latest venture.
“Pakistan Tehreek Insaf”, a political party lead by Imran Khan, are continuously using this song in their rallies as an awakening call for the Pakistani poeple. However, Strings have distanced themselves from running PTI’s political
campaign and denied any other political motive.
Strings are of the belief that they made this song for the Pakistan people, denying any political motive behind it. They revealed that an art has always played a vital role influencing a nation and gave the example of Ilama Iqbal’s
“We are not associated with any party and this song is not their official anthem. It’s just that Imran Khan really believes in the content of this song and wants it to be played in all his rallies. We support him because at the
moment he seems to be our only hope. He might not be perfect but, one thing is certain, he is not corrupt and that’s the reason people are supporting him.” Strings were quoted as saying.
They added: “The world has seen art as a very strong medium to bring a change. This is exactly what we are hoping for. Was Madam Noor Jehan entertaining our soldiers with “Aay Watan Kay Sajeelay Jawano?”
Strings have recently performed at Minar-e-Pakistan (Lahore), where they were left surprised by an energetic Lahori crowd. Strings thanked their listeners for attending the event, admitted that the crowd was above their expectation.
Faisal and Bilal went on to admit that Pakistan is struggling due to the leadership and suggested that PTI deserves a chance. They urged the Pakistani people to pull their nation out of this turmoil, taking interest in the political
situation of Pakistan.
