Despite building an impressive cross-continental career in international finance, Qamar Saleem, has found himself fully immersed in the world of music. Currently based in Singapore, Qamar’s childhood and youth were full of sunny days and song, spending most of his spare time in front of his digital keyboards and vocals training with tutors. An early crooner, he was much sought after by family and friends for his singing talent. Over time, he began to hone his craft with frequent performances, as well as stints with music bands.
Qamar’s mission in music is about connecting with others and communicating in a language that understands, exalts and heals. To give voice to those that have none, to offer support to those that need it the most and to be the guiding light when there is only dark, this barely illustrates the deep love for mankind that is abundant in Qamar Saleem’s music.
Qamar launched his debut single, Janaan (translated-my beloved) in November 2020 and his popularity began to soar, with over 1 million views of the song on YouTube and over 2 million in total across multi social media platforms. His music not only gained nationwide recognition in Pakistan with him featuring on prime time TV shows and leading newspapers, but also global recognition from over 50 countries. Still, Qamar remains as hardworking as ever and pursues his career in finance with unwavering rigor.
Refusing to rest on his laurels, a brand-new single “Ankaha” was launched in March 2021 and has gained even more popularity crossing 3 million views on YouTube alone. The song has touched many hearts around the world as it depicts sentiments that could not be uttered, fondness that remained unshared, relationships fatally interrupted, and collective journeys that came to a sudden end. Qamar really feels inspired by all the love and admiration for his music and promises more songs, healing and joy through his music that sees no boundaries of geography, culture, or language.
In his continued pursuit of music passion and in an effort to keep connecting and making a difference, Qamar’s new song “SONA” is a celebration of the most cherished experience of “first love” and the rejuvenating value it carries throughout our lifetime. It matters not whether that infatuation resulted in a union that lasted. Or in any union at all. Why it matters is that it was our first brush with love and characterized by nothing but purity and intensity of emotion!
