Danyal Zafar releases his latest song Akhiyaan
After the launch of his first album Blue Butterfly in early March 2020, followed by Udh Chaliya which was recorded in two days only, having spent 17 days in self-quarantine multi-talented Danyal Zafar alias Danny Zee releases his latest song Akhiyaan.
Mariam Idris was the Visual Artist behind Udh Chaliye’ artwork and now the Visual Animator behind Akhiyaan’s music video. Danyal and Mariam share their experience of how this song and video came into being.
On the occasion of Akhiyaan’s release, Danyal Zafar said; “I think this is the first time I’ve worked on the absolute and pure gut and intuition. Udh Chaliye’ happened in a dream, literally. I gave it no second thoughts, and I just hummed the melody for my fans the second I woke up and asked them to help me write it, and 24 hours, voilah, there was a track with its video released."
He further added, "This gave me a high on another level. It was an adrenaline rush I’ve never felt with any prior release. Akhiyaan happened the same way, I think it’s kind of like a movement not within just myself but also with my fans."
Working on the music video, Visual Artist Mariam Idris shares her experience: "I was given the creative freedom to create it in my style according to how Danyal wanted it. I am an empathetic and I think most creative people are so. When I created it, I tried to keep in mind the feeling of what it's like. Along with asking Danyal if he wanted the piece to be calmer or to change certain colours to fit the mood."
Akhiyaan official video is currently available for streaming on YouTube whereas audio is available on Audio Spotify, Apple Music, Gaana, JioSaavn, Soundcloud as well as Deezee.
