The two month long cruise of Pepsi Battle of The Bands Season 3 came to an end as the final episode of the much hyped music competition came out on Sunday. The show was reduced to two finalists Bayaan and Xarb, and the finale featured multiple performances by the judging panel.
The show commenced with a thrilling performance of internationally acclaimed band Strings, who are also the part of the judging panel of the show. The duo consisting of Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia performed their 2006 hit ‘Zinda’ but the version of the song was quite different from the original track. Although Strings maintained their trademark energy through out the performance. Strings always brings new level of energy whenever they perform live.
An original number named ‘Main’ was performed by Meesha Shafi. The atmosphere was enigmatic, with the dim lights and perfect set up, the performance was quite amusing to watch. The judge from the last season of Pepsi Battle of The Bands Shahi Hasan, who was also affiliated with this season as a mentor performed on a revamped version of Vital Signs ‘Maula’.
The highlight of the show was the performance led by Fawad Khan along with seventeen more musicians on the song ‘Satrangi’ which he penned down a decade ago. The song belonged to the World genre and was a perfect blend of music.
A divulging moment came to the show when the participants were given an opportunity to ask questions from the jury. Whereas everybody else asked about the struggle of the judges and sought a word of advice, the Bayaan members asked the former associate of Entity Paradigm about their possible comeback to music. About why Fawad Khan said he usually goes to the studio just to reminisce the old memories of the band.
He further said that he might return with a couple of songs every year but his proper return to music is not on the cards. Khan added that music is a case of ‘never say never.’ He left the door open for future opportunities.
The Pepsi Battle of The Bands finale also featured video packages about the band members and their families highlighting the journey throughout as a band. Both of the bands also talked of their favorites, their inspirations and the struggle that they went through in this process of being what they are today.
Finally following these events the big moment arrived and the results were revealed bringing the anticipation of several weeks and both of the bands clinched the praise but Bayaan was announced as the triumphant of the show.
The band Bayaan engraved their name into the history books and came out as the winners of the third edition of the music competition. It was Bayaan’s turn to shine bright after the winners of the first and second seasons Aaroh and Kashmir.
The jury stated that the real musical journey of both of the bands actually starts now.
