A Star Is Born: Asfar Hussain takes his musical band to victory – makes community and the country proud

Pakistani musical scene is seeing a revival at world’s stage with quality performances and artistic feats all around. Asfar Hussain’s musical band ‘Bayaan’ participating in a reality show called Pepsi Battle of the Bands, won hearts and minds of the country through sound, lyrics, music and performances. The world saw Asfar as a lead singer proudly represent the community by wearing the Diamond Jubilee lapel pin in public, in several of his performances. He made the community and the country proud.

Originally from Chitral, Asfar comes from an artistic family. His father is a poet and his brother is also a singer. The family is immersed in music-making and musical instruments (watch Band’s family introduction here). Asfar led the forming of the band during the early participation at another very popular musical show called Nescafe Basement (read about their story here). Since then, the boys have seen their stardom rise to higher degrees. The last episode of the show saw Asfar perform his very first song with his band mates in unison. The professional judges were all praise for the band’s bright future.
