“My vision for Bisconni consists of many passion points out of which one is Bisconni Music. I am very enthusiastic about this particular project as I’ve always been passionate about Pakistani Music. I always knew our industry is full of talent and talent that is undiscovered. I believed that music is an art that shall not be given any rules or boundaries. When you let the musicians run wild with their ideas, let their creativity flow, that’s when the real magic happens.”

There’s so much talent in this country and with Sabir Godil at Bisconni Music, it’s a dream collaboration for me as we both share the same vision of not only developing and producing new music but also allowing them to be part of the national platform where they can truly shine.
