Atif Aslam just makes news in and around Kashmir when he sings Kashmiri songs in the Pepsi Battle of Bands contest. Pakistan has had Rock Bands battling each other for quite sometime now. When I say this word, what appears in your mind is probably this loud, unapologetic, audacious music from the West. Of Jazz, you might think of it as a type of sensuous music with men in black suits performing in bars in the West. Punk Music, if you have heard of it, is the type of music which dominated England in the seventies. Layman from any part of the Third World would definitely frown upon such kinds of music. It would be wrong to call man a slight victim of cultural imperialism if he claims to like such music in our part of the world but not in Pakistan in the first decade of the Millennium. In the first decade of the 2000s, there was this immensely powerful Rock Music scene in Pakistan in which Band played Rock Music with Urdu lyrics with local ethos and traditional roots intact. It has to be noted that bands and artists like Vital Signs, Junoon, Amir Zaki paved the way for the thriving independent music scene in the nineties. Vital Signs had come up with this amazing Indie pop, blend of pop musicality and Urdu writing. Junoon surely invented an electrifying genre they call Sufi Rock. All these artists were producing music independently, in an Indie way and not producing music for music directors or films. These were artists who produced music on their own terms and were famous for it, unlike the modus operandi in Bollywood, where artists have to adhere to the film director and film theme. All this makes way for some brilliant Rock Bands from Pakistan who take the loudness and audacity of Rock Music and blend it with their own style of songwriting and respective music styles. The Jazz fusion Band from Lahore is formed by Virtuoso guitarist Mekaal Hassan. Very famous classical vocalists, Javed Bashir, who sang for the band and Mohammad Ahsan Papu, who plays flute, endow band sound with a very Eastern soul. Numbers like Rabba mere Haal da mehram tu and Andholan are not just songs but musical landmarks showcasing a brilliant amalgamation of influences from West and East. The effective manner in which they fuse traditional folk tunes with Heavy Rock and Jazz creates a sound that is exclusive only to this band. In simple words, EP was Pakistans answer to Linkin Park. Although they could never come close to the magnanimity of Linkin Park, their music was honest and surely rocking. It would be an interesting fact for those who do know that the lead vocalist of Band EP was Fawad Khan, guy who in coming next decade will become a heartthrob. The band is noted for being one of the pioneer mainstream rock bands in the Pakistani music industry.
