Saregama India Ltd. & `Le Club Musique` showcases one of the most popular and preferred Rock/Pop Band that has made it BIG Globally among Youth. Introducing none other than STRINGS Live - India Tour 2012.
Not only do Indians get to see one of their favourite Indipop bands perform live, but adults attending the concert in Delhi can purchase Rs.1000 worth food and drinks. This amount is included in the cost of the ticket that is Rs. 3000. Strings are an internationally acclaimed Pakistani pop rock band comprising two members from Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The band was initially formed by four college students, Bilal Maqsood (vocals and guitars), Faisal Kapadia (vocals), Rafiq Wazir Ali (synthesizer) and Kareem Bashir Bhoy (bass guitars) in 1988. In 1992, the quartet disbanded only to make a comeback with two of its members, Bilal and Faisal later in 2000. While the initial band was riding on the new wave of Pakistani pop music, the later formation ushered a new revival in the music industry of Pakistan.
Strings are acclaimed all over the world for their stringed rhythms, their songs are praised not only for being melodious but having a strong poetic sense to them. Penned by Anwar Maqsood, Bilal`s father, the lyrics of their songs always carry a deep meaning with them. Anwar has been writing lyrics for the band since its re-formation where as Faisal Kapadia is the lead vocalist for the band, Bilal Maqsood acts as the composer, guitarist and at times does vocals for a few songs. To play live at concerts, both the members have hired Adeel on the lead guitar, Shakir on the bass guitar, Haider on keyboards and Qaiser on drums, an entourage ensemble that travels with them to various international concerts at times.
Strings` music is heavily influenced by Eastern Classical Music and Western Rhythms. With increased emphasis on eastern melodies involving the touch of raga in the vocals, the band use instruments like Flute and Sarangi to give the vocals an Eastern touch to their songs. Songs like ``Duur`` and ``Sar Kiye Yeh Pahar`` (from Duur) and ``Kahani Mohabat Ki`` (from Dhaani) are some examples of this influence. Other songs, such as ``Sohniyae`` and ``Najane Kyun`` (from Dhaani) have elements of Rock Music. Bands stated as their influencing factor and a source of inspiration include Junoon, Nazia and Zoheb.
