Pakistan's pop sensation Asim Azhar has a band now and Strings' member Aahad Nayani has joined him in his venture.

Azhar, who recently made more headlines for his personal affairs than his musical outings, has formed a band called The Asim Azhar Band. Sharing a photo with his band members, Azhar revealed that Nayani will be among his belt of premiere musicians who will bring a new sound to the pop music scene of Pakistan.

Nayani, who is among the finest drummers in Pakistan today, has also appeared in Coke Studio with Strings. He is the first Pakistani drummer to become brand ambassador for Vater Percussion and Mapex Drums. And just a few days ago, he was also featured in Modern Drummer Magazine. Earlier, he was featured in Rolling Stones Magazine India as well.

Azhar's band photo also sees Kamran Zafar, popularly known as Mannu, the exemplary bassist who has played with Ali Azmat on 'Klashinfolk' and made countless contributions to Mekaal Hassan Band's live sessions. Mannu has also appeared in Coke Studio and played with some of the most well known artists from the region.

The Yaad singer, however, has not provided any further details about his band and what the focus of their upcoming outings will be. But here's hoping we get to hear his band of maestros in action soon.
