As Pakistan’s Independence Day draws closer, Indian Acapella Band Voxchord sends a gift our way: singing a version of our national anthem.
The two-minute music video starts with members of the band holding placards which read: “This Independence Day, we’d like to dedicate a song to our neighbours. A song about faith, pride and grandeur, of power, progress and perfection.”
The surprise offering comes just days before Aug 14 and features the singers in a monochrome video. Free of any instruments, the song is quite a treat to listen to.
Although the gesture has received mixed reviews on both sides of the border, many have appreciated the song and the message it seeks to promote.
