The Indo-Pakistan music duo, Qurram Hussain and Rup Magon, was very happy to see that the scene of large public concerts is back in Pakistan, and they repeatedly expressed this happiness during the concert attended by more than 10,000 people at the Packages Mall.
“We’ve been coming to Pakistan to perform since 2003, and I can tell you that I’ve seen the music scene change when the political scene changes. Our country has gone through a lot of ups and downs, but in the last couple of years I’ve seen a very positive movement towards music and arts. Packages Mall concert was proof that public concerts are back in Pakistan, and that warms my heart,” said Qurram Hussain while talking to media after the concert.
“Our audiences deserve the best, and this was a great feeling to experience for me as a Pakistani,” he added.
Besides their powerful Punjabi hits, the Toronto based band also performed a surprise medley of Pakistani pop songs at the concert as a tribute to Pakistani pop music. They went through a generation of songs which met with a loud applause by the audience.
Talking about the special medley, Qurram aka Q said that “it was a little tribute by JoSH to all the great music Pakistani pop has given us. It’s the music that moulded me into the musician that I am today, and it was great to put this together and perform it for the first time.”
However talking to media, Rup Magon said performing in front of live crowds made him forget everything and allowed them to enjoy that amazing moment in its entirety – Packages Mall would forever be an amazing memory.
Besides different private shows, the band also performed at a couple of corporate events in Lahore including at the HBL PSL party at the Lahore Forte during the tour.
