WAJD (Urdu: وجد , literal English translation: "Ecstasy"), derived from Wujud, is a Pakistani rock (music) band which gained popularity with their song Jeena Chahta Hoon (released in 2006),[1] also included on their debut album Toofan-e-Munn (released in July 2010) by Fire Records.[2] WAJD is the only featured artist, whose all videos (all five of them) have been featured and promoted by GeoTV- Pakistan's most selling news paper group and most famous online TV news channel.[3] This is mainly due to the political, patriotic and social content that the band produces during the song writing process. On numerous occasions, the band has shared their Sufi experiences, ideas behind the mystic poetry, and soulful song-writing ideology during the TV, radio and news paper interviews, such as, band's latest interview at Rohi TV.[4] During band's early days Pakmusic partnered with the band for web promotions and releases.[5]

Music[edit | edit source]

While the band was recording the song Toofan-e-Munn, it was decided to name the album after this song. Soon after this song the entire album was completed and sent to Fire Records - one of the biggest record labels in Pakistan. The album was reviewed and accepted by Fire Records and the band signed the deal with them in 2008.[6] The album was delayed due to certain reasons and was finally released in July 2010[7][8] followed by the launching of Toofan-e-Munn Video. Since the album was now the property of Fire Records, they chose their own Fire Records' employee/in-house director Asad Pathan to direct the video. Both the album and video received positive responses from the market.[9] The album name is also spelled as "Toofan-e-Mann" at several websites.[10]
