The talented Asim Azhar sprung onto the music scene with his YouTube video cover of the hit song, “A-Team” by British songwriter Ed Sheeran. Asim is of Punjabi descent, living in Karachi and comes from a musical family. His father is the world famous pianist, Azhar Hussain who’s been a staple of the desi music scene since the 70’s. His older brothers are also musicians who compose, produce and perform their music. Turns out that despite the music genes, Asim was ‘mic shy’ growing up. He entered the music scene by producing a number of cover songs. In May 2013 he released his first original song “Sunley”. Performing at the London Mela, Asim will certainly be a star attraction!
