Dark horses lead one of a kind music award show
While we’ve seen numerous occasions that pursue positions like the Literature Festival, Lux Style Awards, and Lahooti Melo, this is the first run through an honor service figured out how to typify the mixture of ability in the Pakistani music industry for quite a long time.
The Shaan-e-Pakistan Achievement in Music Awards (Sepma) was a two-day occasion that occurred in Lahore on Thursday and Friday, sparkling a light on our one of a kind blend of groups and vocalists.
As indicated by a public statement, the classes for privileged accomplishments in music included Best Rock Music, Best Traditional Music, Best EDM (electronic move music), Best Indie, Best Drama OST, Best Pop, Best Rap, Best Playback, Best Lyrics, Best Music Video Director and even Best Jingle.
In examination with the territory of Pakistani music in general, seeing the development of hip-jump and EDM as classes at an honor function is extraordinary advancement. It was invigorating to see performers, for example, 18-year-old rising star Abdullah Siddiqui win Best EDM with the very outstanding Asim Azhar and the accomplished SomeWhatSuper additionally in the running.
Natasha Humera Ejaz won Best Playback Singer (Female) which was a much needed development as well. Same can be said of different classifications where we saw candidates like Zeb Bangash, Ali Sethi, Meesha Shafi, and Ali Noor get outpaced by more youthful performers significantly more current in correlation.
Groups, for example, Chaand Tara Orchestra (CTO), Poor Rich Boy and Karakoram were given the spotlight for a change and it felt reminiscent of when the business had a variety of pop and musical crews to offer.
That never showed signs of change, as the rise of new groups kept on becoming throughout the years, however to see some getting featured and celebrated at Sepma brought back some desire for the eventual fate of groups in Pakistan – something that has disseminated in the course of the most recent decade or somewhere in the vicinity
Jami Mahmood won Best Music Video for String’s Urr Jaoun – how nostalgic! Goodness, to see Jami win for a music video once more! Movie producer and CTO front-man Baber Sheik got the honor for his benefit. An uncommon, uncontested honor by Sepma was declared for Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan (Xulfi) from Nescafe Basement for advancing youthful ability which has been bound to happen.
One would be unable to discover a stage like Nescafe Basement that has, throughout the years, really helped youthful, hopeful artists sharpen their specialty and discharge music into the void that is Pakistani music scene. The honor was gotten by Sherry Khattak.
Maybe the best thing about the night was the expression on the hosts’ countenances amid Umer Khan’s (otherwise called Duck from Poor Rich Boy) discourse. It was an honor service all things considered and at such occasions, desires for triviality run high. Caps off to Umer for utilizing the stage to reveal insight into relevant socio-political issues, while in the meantime communicating exactly how incredible it feels to commend little successes now and again like these.
