This is the time to fulfill our destiny by contributing our best, united. Not as individual identities but we will rise as a nation. Towards a better state, the envisioned land.. A Naya Pakistan… InshAllah!
So there is something big cooking up in a studio of Karachi these days. And this is certainly going to be huge once it gets out of the stores.
It is reported that some of the musical legends of our industry namely Salman Ahmad, Shahi Hasan, Nusrat Hussain and none other than Junaid Jamshed, are together gearing up for release of a new single named as “Naya Pakistan”. This track will most probably be a patriotic number but the most important thing which is causing the excitement among the music fans is the re-union of these pop giants from the past.

We live in a world full of paradoxes. It might be a hard fact to digest for some, others might relate to it, but over the period of time it has got so rampant in our society that some time we fail to distinguish and are left in the state of oblivion and confusion. In our daily life, we come across so many people, and at times even situations to which we have no answers. Many times it’s even our own action which puzzles us. It’s basically the perception that makes us wrong and we fail to recognize what we see.
“Appearances can be deceptive” and the media industry is no exception to it, perhaps the best example of it.
As the music industry adapts to the changing mechanics of the world, we see increased artistic output and an even greater reception. Instead of record companies, the artists are turning to sponsors and the trend of cover songs is gaining momentum. Cover songs are a great way to show off your skills and pay tribute to your heroes, but it wasn’t a very common practice until very recently. So in order to keep you more updated on this developing phenomenon here is Koolmuzone’s list of Top Pakistani Covers From 2011.
