Pakistan’s prestigious and most awaited Awards show – Lux Style Awards 2011 – nominations have been announced in 22 Television, Music and Fashion Categories.
This time, Music categories have only 3 nominations (it used to be 5 nominations before), which reflects the lack of releases during the year 2010. As per the press release for Awards Show, the music jury preferred to leave the nominations blank than recognize ‘mediocre‘ work. The music jury of Lux Style Awards had the objection that Pakistani Bands and Singers only released Singles rather than Complete Albums. There were no concerts, so most of their work was appeared overseas, specially in neighboring country, India.
According to them, The handful of singers and bands who did notable work was Kaavish, Mauj, Seige, Areib Azhar, Shallum & Zara, Symt, while Strings and Atif Aslam collaborated on Ab Khud Kuch Karna Parayga. Coke Studio and its growing impact on the music industry dominated the discussion during the Jury Session.
