Take a look at the pictures of the event:
CALL is an Alternative Rock band formed by Danish J. Khan, Khurram J. Khan, Xulfi and Omer Pervaiz. The vocalist, Danish J. Khan left in 2001 and the band was disbanded. However, it reformed in 2002 when Khurram Jabbar Khan, a core member of the band returned from the United States. Khurram and Xulfi got together and auditioned for new band members and decided that their lingua franca would be Urdu. They found Junaid’s voice to be fitting for the band’s musical direction and recruited him as the band’s vocalist. Soon Sunny was chosen to be on lead guitar, Usman Nasir on rhythms and Sultan Raja (Xulfi’s student) on bass. Khurram joined in on drums. They released their debut album, Jilawatan in late 2005.
The official sponsors of this Unplugged edition were Pepsi Co., Cadbury Dairy Milk, TDI, Close Up and Oman Air. Spectacular prizes were given out to attendees sponsored by Oman Air and Close-Up.
