Two of the biggest rock tycoons from two of the most critically acclaimed bands in Pakistan working together under one roof? Is it possible? It sure is because hard rock band Karavan’s lead vocalist Tanseer Ahmed Daar and alternative rock band Aaroh’s former lead guitarist Nabeel Nihal Chishti have revealed to join forces and release an album titled ‘The Nabeel Nihal Project’ as a collaborative effort at the end of the year.

Considering the fact that both the performers are exceptionally gifted when it comes to rock at its purest form, Guitarist Nabeel was in search of a vocalist and with the amount of experience Tanseer has on his shoulders alongside with Karavan, he was a perfect choice. “A vocalist like Dar will spell the true magic in the album,” said Nabeel. “He has undiscovered talent and is the best amongst all the vocalists that I had tried for this album.”

Regarding the selection, Tanseer considers himself lucky as he stated, “Nabeel had just called me to sing one song for his album but he liked it so much that I ended up singing them all.” It is to be recalled that the band Karavan is set to make a reunion but with Tanseer’s commitment to the Nabeel, one can definitely expect a clash but the former has made it clear that the band is indeed a priority. “It’s just one project. Karavan is like my baby. The songs that we made run in my blood. It’s everything to me and it will always remain this way,” said Tanseer regarding his respective collaborations.
