Abbas Ali Khan thinks that we need to stop getting influenced from Bollywood.
He told Something Haute at the trailer launch of Chalay Thay Saath:
“It’s not impossible to have our own individual style.”
Abbas has created the musical score for CTS and it sounds like he has done a great job.
“I wanted the music to sound Pakistani so we made sure to use instruments that are used in Pakistan. For example, since the film has been shot in Hunza, we used instruments such as the rubab. We have also incorporated traditional Chinese instruments specially made in China, as some of the film is shot in China. What’s interesting is that the raag of Pakistan’s mountainous regions is very similar to the raag used in China. It’s beautiful how the two sounds came together.”
