Biography

(2002 – present)

Jal (Urdu: جل, literal English translation: “water”) is a pop rock band from Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.[1] The band originally consisted of song writer, vocalist and lead guitarist, Goher Mumtaz and vocalist, Atif Aslam.[2] Founded in 2002, they first became popular playing in Lahore’s underground music scene with the release of their song “Aadat”, which was a massive hit in Pakistan topping all local music charts.[2]

The band initially achieved critical and commercial success with the release of their music video “Aadat”, directed by Umer Anwar, in 2003. After the success of the single, lead vocalist, Atif Aslam due to musical differences with lead guitarist Goher Mumtaz, parted ways with the band to pursue a career as a solo artist. This led Mumtaz recruit musicians Farhan Saeed on vocals and Aamir Sheraz on bass guitar.[2] The band’s new lineup followed with the release of their debut studio album, Aadat, in 2004. The album was declared as the best selling album of 2004 on Geo TV by the record label Sadaf Stereo. Soon after wards, the band recorded and released their second studio album Boondh in 2007, which topped several music charts in South Asia. The success of both the albums has led the band to achieve several awards, most notably winning the MTV Asia Award for Favorite Artist India in 2006.
