Ali Noor Muisc

As the world came to a standstill, hit by a pandemic that forced it to go inwards, Ali Noor
reached outwards, calling out across Lahore to his creative family, the people with whom he shares the profound bond that comes from creating art together. Without hesitation, they answered and, for 21 days, a team of seven people, all artists in their own right, descended on Ali Noor and Mandana Zaidi’s house in Bedian. Together, they recorded and rerecorded tracks, moved lights during music video shoots, cooked, cleaned, laughed, fought, and lived together as a family.

From this magic, of the collective, of boundaries falling away, Pagal was created. Ali Noor’s first album since the disbandment of Noori, an album that comes after a four-year hiatus, Pagal is testament to the power of the collective, and the transcendence of human connection.

Ali Noor picked up his first instrument in primary school — while living in the United Kingdom, he was chosen to play the triangle in his school’s band. It would be very many years before he became the shaggy-haired front man of Noori — angrily belting out the words to Kuttey, even as he moodily crooned Tum Hans Diye to a generation that sat wide-eyed at their television
screens, absorbing the lyrics of his socially-charged songs. The trajectory, however, had been set when Ali Noor was just ten years old, sitting wide-eyed at his own television screen, watching Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” for the first time. Too young to know why, he decided that day that music was his calling in life.
