Sadly another music band of Pakistan bites the dust as it is official now that Junaid Khan has left the Call band. Although not many people will be surprised by this news because Junaid is already seen busy with his solo projects for quite some time now, so this was pretty much inevitable. But then this is how it goes on here and every good thing has end to it. However, the master mind behind Call, Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan a.k.a Xulfi is really upbeat about the future of the band and promises an even better Call after the lead vocalist walking away.

Call re-emerged on the Pakistani music scene almost a decade ago. They have some huge hits to their credit such as Pukaar, Shayad, Laaree Chootee, Aasman, Hum Se Hai Zamana.

November 6, 2012

Like every year, the number of concerts happening around really springs up as the weather tends to get cold. And same is the case this time as you would see a lot of concert posters taking on the walls of the city and of course Facebook.

Out of all these live performances lined up for this winter, the most notable is of Call the band, and the story just doesn’t end up here as they will be featuring Mustafa Zahid from Roxen as the guest vocalist.

Earlier they had performed with Mustafa on the lead vocals in Risalpur some weeks ago but this would be the first time that both the heavy weights will be performing together in their home ground i.e. Lahore.

Xulfi, who is the main driving force behind Call, is a long time friend of Mustafa and really helped the Roxen boys when they were in process of producing their first album Roxen-e-Dewar.
