Proud to contribute musically, the HAC Band expressed its joy at supporting His Majesty The King’s Birthday Parties at The British High Commission in Pakistan. “The band is set to perform at various events throughout the week, taking advantage of this opportunity to rehearse for upcoming performances,” stated the band.
The global sensation of Coke Studio’s “Pasoori,” a chart-topping phenomenon on Spotify and translated into various languages, serves as a testament to the band’s ability to bridge distances and connect through the universal language of music.
Written by Ali Sethi and Fazal Abbas, and composed by Ali Sethi and Xulfi Music, the song’s release was accompanied by a message urging to “transcend boundaries and bridge distances through compassion, love, and identity.” The band’s performance truly exemplifies these sentiments, echoing beyond borders.
