Falak The Band is a South Asian fusion rock band from Toronto, Canada.Read More...
They caused a stir in the Pakistani Music world in early 2007 when they got blacklisted on MTV Pakistan. After having aired the music video for their song 'Yadein II' for a couple of months, the tv channel deemed it too controversial because of its images related to the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. Falak was supposed to open a park concert for some of Pakistan’s biggest acts in front of thousands in February 2007, but organisers abruptly cancelled the event after MTV decided not to air the video. The news about the censorship generated a good deal of media attention for this relatively unknown Toronto-based group. The video showed flashbacks to flying lessons, farewell videos and letters, open maps, airport security screening and takeoff. The video ends with the famous pictures of a plane that crashes into the second World Trade Center tower in New York.
Their debut album “Standard Issue” is released now.
