Mizmaar

MIZMAAR

Formed by guitarist Kashan Admani, fusion pop-rock band Mizmaar rose to fame in their native Pakistan with their debut album Kash, the release producing two hit singles for the songs ‘Kash’ and ‘Laut Ke Aa’ in 2003. Their second album, Sitara, was released worldwide on Universal Music in 2007, and spawned the hits ‘Hai Pyar Kya’ and ‘Sitara,’ the latter landing on a soundtrack to the Hollywood film ‘Dragon War.’

Despite their early success, the band was plagued by several personnel changes, prompting Kashan to focus more on his recording studio and commercial music production company, collaborating with longtime friend, band mate and drummer Alfred D’Mello. For several years to follow, the band was silent until Kashan and Alfred happened upon a young vocalist [name to be revealed soon!]: this phenomenally talented singer immediately had the two thinking seriously about reforming Mizmaar with a new front man and revitalizing their sound. The new vocalist brings a new strength to the band, combining classic eastern influences with a western pop attitude. There is currently a new album in the works. This widely anticipated comeback is due to be released soon, along with a video directed by Kashan featuring the newly recharged lineup.
