And it may or may not given you all the feels.
The song, a rendition of the national song, ‘Khayal Rakhna’ by Alamgir was sung beautifully (like, SUPER beautifully) by super stars Ali Noor, Sara Haider, Zoe Viccaji, Rachel Viccaji and Ahsan Pervez Mehdi as a tribute to one of Pakistan’s most famous songs.
And we were EMOTIONAL.
Literally stuck in our heads
We love our Bollywood but yes, v magical
Couldn’t have said it better ourselves
You may also have noticed that they weren’t any actual instruments in the video…
For those of you who don’t know what A Capella is – it is a form a music that is 100% instrument free. That means all the musicians create their music with nothing but their mouths and voices.
And WOW, A Capella is amazing
And the video? STUNNING
Traditional, cultural and ethnic outfits along with those lyrics and Ali Noor’s cleaned up look (lolllsy)? Yaar – zabardast.
The song, done so well by some of Pakistan’s greatest talent, has been circulating the interwebs as an official launch to the first season of Strepsils Stereos.
In other words – YAAAS
Strepsils Stereo, the brand new music platform is hitting our screen (and hearts) by introducing A Capella format in Pakistan for the first time. Partnering with Ali Noor’s BIY Music, the first season of this new platform will end in December with a total of 4 songs.
A WHOLE NEW FOUR SONGS IN A CAPELLA FRIENDS! A WHOLE FOUR!
A Capella is not only a stunning form of music, it fully allows listeners to really hear the lyrics of each song. Even in this cover of the song, all the artists create the most perfect melody while showing the simplistic beauty of the song effortlessly.
Like I said, feels.
We cannot wait for the new episodes to air and for the rest of the season to unfold. A CaYAAAAAS.
