The Daily Mail - Daily News from Pakistan: An interview with String - Pakistani pop group
Q. What motivated you to choose art as a career? Any source of inspiration?
A. We always wanted to create something new in music. This served as the motivational factor to choose art as a career. We are inspired by senior Pakistani singers and R. D. Burman.
"Strings was formed in 1989, when Bilal and Faisal met each other in their college. Bilal started on the keyboards and composition at the age of twelve, long before the concept of Strings was evolved, and later when Strings came into being, he took over the guitars along with composition and co-writing the lyrics of their songs with Faisal."
