Strings was formed as a college band by four students Bilal Maqsood, Faisal Kapadia, Rafiq Wazir and Kareem Bashir Bhoy in 1989.
Pakistani rock band Strings, known for belting out hit songs like “Dhaani” and “Duur”, have announced that they are ending their 33-year-long musical partnership.
The group took to social media on Thursday evening to announce their decision to disband, saying that the members will share an “inseparable bond”.
“Hey guys. This post is a bit different from the usual. We have decided that today, 25/03/2021, is the day we graciously get to conclude Strings. The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us,”
Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood said that the split wasn’t due to hard feelings. They said despite the split, they were extremely fond of each other and share an inseparable bond.
Fans took to social media to vent their grief at the news, shocked that one of Pakistan’s most iconic bands would come to an end like this.
