Aahad Nayani: Drummer/Percussionist with South Asian pop band Strings

Aahad Nayani: Drummer/Percussionist with popular South Asian pop band StringsAahad Nayani: Drummer/Percussionist with popular South Asian pop band StringsStrings is an internationally acclaimed Pakistani pop band comprising two members. The band was formed when four college students—Bilal Maqsood, Faisal Kapadia, Rafiq Wazir Ali and Kareem Bashir Bhoy—decided to form a band in 1988 in Karachi. In 1992, the quartet disbanded only to make a comeback with two of its members, Bilal and Faisal later in 2000. While the initial band was riding on the new wave of Pakistani pop music, the later formation ushered a new revival in the music industry of Pakistan.

Aahad Nayani joins them as a Drummer. Nayani is probably considered one of the top most drummers in Pakistan. The Indus Valley School of Arts and Architecture recently organized a musical night which featured performance by Strings with Aahad. At the end of the show Bilal Maqssod exclaimed, “It was very energising to perform with such a responsive crowd but a special thanks to our young drummer, Aahad Nayani, because of whom our live sound has become really good.”

Aahad Nayani has also been selected as the first Pakistani to be the ambassador for the leading drumsticks and percussion company “VATER”.
