Rameez Anwar Pays Tribute To His Own Legacy
Rameez Khawaja Anwar, a composer and multi-instrumentalist takes the legacy of his grandfather, the renowned Pakistani music director Khawaja Khurshid Anwer farther by creating music that sounds back to an era when melody was in its pure form.
Rameez’s upcoming music video for his new song, ‘Woh Umeed Ki Manzil,’ is a love letter to songs of Bollywood-Lollywood past. The composition use instruments like vibraphone, bansuri, and sarangi, to the piano entrance to give a memorial to the golden era of sub continental film. The centrepiece of the track is an evocative vocal performance from Zeb Bangash, with the kind of flair typical of singers from that era.
Born and raised in Texas, Rameez was always drawn to the film songs composed by his grandfather and other luminaries of the Bollywood-Lollywood film industries.
“Growing up in America, my musical influences definitely skewed more towards Western pop, rock, and a little bit of hip hop, but our parents always made sure my siblings and I were exposed to Desi music from a young age, Rameez racalls.
The music video was directed by Maham Khwaja, another of Khurshid Anwar’s grandchildren. Maham has tried to recreate the look and feel of one of her grandfather’s songs, from the black and white images to the hair, makeup, and wardrobe, and to garden setting overlooking a winding river with frames full of fog. The video includes Aniqa Khwaja (no relation) and Nikhil Saboo, both are young and upcoming actors.
The seed for the song actually began with Rameez’s father, Dr. Khawaja Nauman Anwar, when the latter was just a young boy. Anwar came up with the melody after reading a novel when he was 15-years old. At the end of the novel was a poem which began, ‘Woh umeed ki manzil, ab kahaan nigaahon mein,’ on which Anwer came up with the melody in just ten minutes. However, despite growing up under the same roof as Khurshid Anwar, the young Anwar was not musically trained, so the tuned sat and kept in humming in head till his own son became able to grow the melody into a full-fledged song.

The main concept behind this exhibition was to encourage artists in the times of COVID-19 to stay motivated and show their creative side.
