Atif Aslam & Strings To Be Featured On MTV Unplugged

July 31, 2011

Atif Aslam and Strings are all-set to perform acoustic sessions in the Indian edition of MTV Unplugged, an acclaimed music series.

The Indian version of MTV Unplugged, an acoustic performance show, which features stripped-down, intimate live sets of popular artists, will go on floors in August. Unplugged which is a follow up of Coke Studio @ MTV will feature two Pakistani artists Atif Aslam and Strings, apart from other Indian artists such as Rabbi Shergill, Shilpa Rao, Indian Ocean and Euphoria.

The concept behind the Unplugged series is that musicians will be re-interpreting their original songs
