5 Minutes with the RamLal Boys [Interview]

April 7, 2011

We sat down with the RamLal boys who recently performed a session for Uth Records and talked about their work, experience with Uth Records and possible future endeavors.

1. How did you begin? How do you define your sound?

Ans: We have been friends since our childhood and used to play music together back then. We actually learnt how to play music with each other. However, we used to play different genres of music. Muhammad Agha used to play for a band called Seth, a death metal band, and Mohammad Sibtain played classic rock. We were always in awe of each other’s music and respected each other immensely. We ended up merging our musical abilities and came up with RamLaL. The sound of RamLaL is a cocktail of the social dynamics of the country we live in as well as all the music we have been exposed to while growing up.
