ISLAMABAD: We’ve heard of musicians that play Asian instruments like tabla, sitar and flute amongst others. But, it’s rare when you come across a singer who shows inclination towards Pakistani music and we don’t mean classical music. We are talking Bollywood. We at trendingingsocial.com
recently came across such a singer.
Well, this Indian music lover is UZAIR who has released beautiful singles titled ‘Mangu Rab Sel’, ‘Tanha’ ‘Dil Da Hal’ ‘Maula Bulanda’ ‘Oh Meri Jana’ ‘Tera Sath Chahye’ and ‘Jindri’ from her dbut album ‘hurricane’
It’s not that people did not warn him about trying his luck in a different country and langugae but Uzair stayed firm on his decision. And he is pretty proud of it because he truly loves Lollywood. “Lollywood music is very close to my heart as I grew up listening to it. I highly respect singers such as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam. I love all kinds of Indian songs be it – ‘Bhangra’, ‘Qwallis’,‘Gazals’, ‘Rajasthani Folk songs’ or ‘Indi-pop’. I think currently Pakistan is in the stage of music experimentation. There are a lot of different genres and sounds influencing music in Pakistani. With so many amazing collaborations happening, it is taking the Pakistani Music scene worldwide. I truly believe that with great music, language is never a barrier and it manages to touch the hearts of all who listen to it. And that’s the beauty of Pakistani music, it is universal because it encompasses such depth and beauty lyrically that it remains with you forever,” said the singer.
Talking in-depth about music the ‘Hurricane’ singer said that he loves the melodies of Pakistani songs. “Since, I don’t speak the language my initial attraction is to the sound. I know Indian music is generally very deep lyrically, therefore once I learn the lyrics translation and go deeper into the song past the music, it makes me feel like I am experiencing love and all the emotions associated with the words. I’m always in love when I listen to Indian music, whether it’s my own music, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan,Atif Aslam etc” stated Uzair.
Uzair who is currently focused on his album ‘Hurricane’ something that he is making in collaboration with musician Bloodline and Pakistani guitarist Fakhar Abbas wishes to make it to Lollywood. “Lollywood is the driving force behind my music. Every step I have taken in my music career to date from coaching to making music, has all been inspired by my desire to sing in the style and language of Lollywood. When you hear my album you will hear, that it is heavily Lollywood orientated and influenced.”
However the singer does not want to work on cover versions of Bollywood songs like most. “I get requests from fans to do Bollywood covers but truthfully I would rather invest my time in original music for my album and also to grow opportunities to sing for Lollywood projects,” averred the singer.
Uzair sings in Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.
