Rubya Chaudry and Hamza Jafri: Rockin’ in the free world
Both of you have been friends for a very long time and worked together in Nida Butt’s Karachi the Musical. What is the story behind you forming a band together?
Rubya: “We started talking about music and discussing ideas. It was easy for me to sing or read what I’d written to Hamza. And I believe he always knew how passionate I was about being able to express myself through this art form. A kind of creative comfort level was developing between us. Eventually, the idea of making an album together came up. And before we knew it, we were looking to name our band. And here we are.”
Hamza: “For Karachi the Musical we also recorded few of the songs for a soundtrack CD release, and Rubya’s song came out very strong. One of the factors was her performance, unique singing voice and varied scale reach. After that experience I had kept her in mind for a musical collaboration. Over the years I’ve composed several pieces of music which I thought another singing voice and different lyrical approach would mix nicely with, and so the Hamza|Rubya collaboration came to be.”
