Khayaal by my featured artist Umair Jaswal still sounding just as fresh as the day it was released on the wildly popular Coke Studio 1 1/2 years ago. Despite the You Tube ban in Umair's native country it is still drawing both National and International fans to this day here is just a few comments of the song written and performed by Umair:
Excerpts from International interview Umair did after Khayaal Release:
"Almost nine years now. When I first started this journey I hardly had any skill or confidence. But I remember having this fire; it’s still there. I’m not done, I’m not there yet. All I know is that there’s no giving up. Music has always been therapy and a way to find myself through words and melodies, dark or happy; it’s the soundtrack of my life. I don’t remember ever taking out time for it, it just happens."
"Yes, there are times when you get lost, after all there’s so much noise. What keeps me going is just one other person who’s there to appreciate, to love, to understand, to embrace. By the grace of God I have so many of them. When people come up to you and tell you that you’ve made a difference in their lives, that your words heal them, that your voice haunts them and that your melodies carry them to another world… To me, that’s the most beautiful feeling that exists, when me and them become one."
