We’ve got their song on repeat. Meet naQsh IPB. Think Coke Studio Pakistan-style music, but by three guys living in Vancouver.

Naqsh IPB Saajna Pakistan pop

Call us clairvoyant. When our editorial director booked Daksh Kubba to sing at her wedding six years ago, she had a hunch he would be a star. Fast forward to 2013 and the Vancouver-based crooner and his band, naQsh IPB have released their debut single, “Saajna” to accolades and more.

A mix of moody rock and classical music, the Indo-Pakistani group is more Coke Studio than Bollywood. Daksh sings lead vocals, while Imran Habib and Irfan Lawrence accompany on lead and bass guitars, with drummer Aman joining on tracks as well.

We’re waiting for their debut on Coke Studio Pakistan. Rohail Hyatt, are you listening?
