Coming out of Lahore, Pakistan, this band of two brothers is considered one of the pioneering forces behind what is dubbed as the ‘21st Century Pop Revolution of Pakistan’. Ali Noor, 31, is a trained lawyer, while Ali Hamza, 28, is an Economics graduate from the top business school in Pakistan (LUMS). By moving away from the typical professional paths which society expected from ‘well educated Pakistanis’ like them, the two brothers decided to follow their passion – music. What they ended up doing was to set a precedent for so many others like them, who would usually not even consider pursuing their passion professionally.
Noori is one of those bands which instantly took the market by storm. In fact, even before going public they had a dedicated fan following awaiting their arrival into the mainstream (this too was a first for any Pakistani act). Their debut album, Suno Ke Main Hun Jawan, was a record breaker for any debutant in the history of Pakistani Pop Music. Not just in terms of record sales, but the band performed over two hundred concerts within the first two years of coming out into the music scene.
The key theme running throughout noori songs is the need for sensitivity, firstly, towards oneself, to gauge one’s true desires and potential, and the consequent pursuit of those, and secondly, sensitivity towards society and the external environment, so that one can play a constructive role in its betterment. In a country like Pakistan, these ideas struck a serious chord with an energetic youth who were looking for someone to motivate and push them towards their ideals. noori thus became the first name in Pakistani Music to take upon a leadership role for Pakistani Youth.
Over a span of 6 years the band has put out two albums (Suno Ke Main Hun Jawan – 2003, Peeli Patti Aur Raja Jani Ki Gol Dunya – 2005), they have performed over 400 concerts, self-produced 10 music videos and won 3 major music awards [Two time award winners at the Indus Music Awards :: Best Rock Song Category – Suno Ke Main Hun Jawan (2004), Nishaan (2006); 1st MTV (Pakistan) Video Music Awards 2007 :: Winner of Best Breakthrough Video – Meray Log].International success is also on the rise as the band has toured Canada thrice in the past two years and once in Europe (August 2008 at the Oslo Mela, Oslo, Norway).
