Originally hailing from Pakistan, Krewella is a Electronic Dance Music (EDM) sensation all across the globe. The sisters, Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf currently reside in the US but appeared on the latest season of Coke Studio where they performed with Riaz and Ghulam Ali Qadri.

In a video posted on YouTube, Krewella talked about its recent trip to Pakistan, especially their adventures in Karachi. The video shows Jahan rehearsing the song  Runaway with Riaz as well.

Of her experience on visiting Pakistan and being an artist, she says, "There are so many things that artists focus on that defines success to them. But for me, Krewella existing in Pakistan is everything I could ask for in our career. I am so grateful."

The girls are also seen buggie-riding at Sea View which they referred to as "Fast and Furious in Pakistan." They also have some fun with Riaz as he teaches them Urdu before the day of the performance.

Producers of Coke Studio Ali Hamza and Zohaib Kazi are also spotted in the video rehearsing as the team brainstorms pitch levels. Even Krewella's manager, who does not belong to Pakistan, seems to be having a lot of fun. He also sports a kurta towards the end.

It looks like the girls had a lot of fun during their trip and we can't wait for them to offer some more new music. Or maybe just do a concert here now?

Jawad U Rahman | 2 years ago | Reply They don't 'originally hail from Pakistan'. They are Americans and are only half Pakistani (their mother is a Ukrainian American). Both were born in Houston, USA. At best, you can say they are of Pakistani ancestry. Of course, none of that changes their great talent and their love for Pakistan.
