Only a few years ago when Coke Studio was shining at its brightest, there emerged a group of college boys led by a veteran rock musician, who churned up a music show that distanced itself from the monotony that South Asia’s biggest music show had plunged into. This new troupe on the block called its jam room Nescafe Basement. Its first season wasn’t exactly a roaring success but some of the tracks like Tere Ishq Mein did make waves.
The show went on to gain momentum over four seasons and also give a boost of confidence to four of its producer’s protégés, bassist Haider Abbas, drummer Mansoor Lashari, guitarist Shahrukh Aslam and vocalist Asfar Hussain. Combining forces with guitarist Muqueet Shahzad, they formed a band they call Bayaan. “We call ourselves Bayaan because we want to express [ourselves] through our music. Each one of us has had diverse experiences in life,” said Muqueet.
