This Album is about seeking and finding God!
The songs have been composed and written, keeping pace with the young generation which has witnessed 2012. The generation which cannot live without tablets, facebook and pubs!! We have paid careful attention to the lyrics (keeping them neat and yet interesting). The language is Hindustani (a mix of Hindi and the most beautiful language of poetry-Urdu). Our music is influenced by western pop and rock music from the 80’s and the 90’s and contemporary Sufi style singing. Rhythm has been kept strong to keep that foot tapping and fingers snapping.
