LAHORE: To have a venue brimming with crowds is a rare occasion for any performer particularly for someone as young and fresh as the Cheapmunks. The feisty young girls managed to get Lahoris on time for a night of musical feasting. With a diverse range of spectators in the house, the energy was electrifying. A tantalising buzz of optimism and energy filled the air when the young congregated one couldn’t help but be drawn into that force. (more…)
The one reason that got me accepting the task of covering the LUMUN concert was that Atif Aslam was going to perform. Yes, that man’s voice is magical and his songs are oh-so-awesome!! =D Over 1200 people witnessed this in the hockey ground last night when Atif Aslam rocked LUMS to its foundations, literally!
After an opening by one of LUMS own band, followed by Bilal Khan’s popular “Bachana” (among a few other songs) Atif Aslam, dressed in a white dress shirt, black pants, jacket and hat, entered the stage, all set to drive the crowd into a frenzy of rock-and-roll! He sang song after song, not letting the energy of the audience go slack for even a moment. Participants sang along to light, melodious songs and banged their heads to hard-rock ones.
After sitting the concert through for around 90 minutes, the audience was told to stand by a charismatic Atif who had declared: Is this a rock concert? C’mon, stand up everyone!!! (SOME guests CAN break our rigid rules =P) What more could the audience have asked for? Things went wild, noisier and crazier as the audience jumped and sang along with Atif. The agitated security team tried it’s best to make the audience sit down one more time. Once this feat had been achieved by the efforts of the volunteers, Atif made them get up AGAIN! And for good!

Adnan Sami Khan has gained widespread fame from his move to India where he has had more access to bigger projects. Even though he travels the globe performing he has found a home in India and who can blame him for that when Pakistan is still not capable of marketing or selling big name acts. Sami Khan may have embraced India but India has taken a few steps back. The singer/composer has had a life filled with controversy from the custody battle with actress Zeba Bakhtiar over their son Azaan. (more…)
