Pakistani music industry has always given some emotional yet passionate cricket World Cup songs to their fans from “Aye Jazba Junoon” by Ali Azmat to “khel Rahey Hum Rangon Mai”. Hockey is our National game but in Pakistan Cricket is loved and watched by all generations and industries, media industry especially Pakistani Music Industry always expressed their love and support for the National Cricket team through music. This year, yet again the Cricket World Cup fever is about to begin and our talented musicians are all set to entertain us with their passionate tracks for the World Cup 2015.
The young talent, Atif Aslam, who melted quite many hearts across the borders with his magical voice and attractive personality, is working currently with the ever talented Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood for the World Cup 2015 song. The mixture of Atif and Faisal’s vocals for the track for Green Team are expecting to be a unique blend. Strings already impressed us by their performance in Coke Studio’s latest season with the interesting compositions of songs “Shakar wanda le” and “Nadiya”.
These three music geniuses already made cricket songs to boost up the boys in Green. In 2003, the Pakistani Rock band Strings sang “Hai koi Hum Jaisa” for the Green shirts, this track was highly appreciated by the cricket fans and became the official World Cup song. The 2003 World Cup song also topped all the Pakistani musical charts. The thirty one year old singing sensation, Atif Aslam also sang a song “Khel Rahe Hum Rangon” for an India-Pakistan Cricket series.
