Abdullah Qureshi’s First Interview! (along with Latest Snow Patrol Video)

Abdullah Qureshi has taken Islamabad, Peshawar and Lahore by storm through his powerful gigs! He is currently enrolled in BS Mass Communication NUST and that is where I got to know the down-to-earth personality behind that mesmerizing voice. He can sing you to tears, he can bring you joy; be it with his rendition of Afreen Afreen or medleys by contemporary western singers. He learnt the guitar as a child and hasn’t stopped strumming ever since. Tall, lean and goofy, he is as friendly as friendly can get. Enjoy the interview! =)
