Pakistani Band in India: Creates Fans, Improves Relations
Pakistani band Strings that has featured in Spiderman-2, has a fan following in India too. Music has a greater influence than cricket, when it comes to improving Indo-Pak relations, believes Faisal Kapadia, lead vocalist of Pakistani band Strings. “In cricket one team wins and the other loses, while in the exchange of music concerts, it’s the audience that wins ultimately,” says he. Faisal alongwith Bilal, the lead guitarist, make up the band. Many a time they have performed live in India. Their track ‘Naa Jaane Kyun ..’ from the album Dhaani was included in last year’s Hollywood blockbuster Spiderman-2 .
