The cultural wing of the Indian Institute Of Planning And Management is organising a concert by the Pakistani pop band The Strings, on 5th October, at the IIPM campus on Hotel Taj Krishna road, Erramanzil Colony.
Strings is a Pakistani pop band comprising two members, Bilal Maqsood, the lead vocalist, and Faisal Kapadia, the guitarist/composer/vocalist. Starting with four college students (Bilal, Faisal, Rafiq and Kareem) in 1990, they came out with a self-titled album. The band dismembered in 1992 after its second album "Strings 2". Eight years later, Bilal and Faisal reformed the group, coming out with their album "Duur" and then "Dhaani", both proving national and international hits.
In 2005, Strings won the best artist award at the MTV Asia Awards. They have composed the soundtrack for the film Shootout At Lokhandwala, Naajanay Kyoun for Spidernan 2, Hai Koi Hum Jaisa (the Pakistani cricket team's official World Cup song), and Tu Hai Kahan for a project by PepsiCo.
