Pepsi Battle of the Bands kicked off season two after almost fifteen years and opened doors for underground bands that had been playing gigs without any recognition for a long time. The platform not only gave bands a space to prove their skills but also highlighted some exceptionally talented individual musicians. They are nothing less than a motivation for the youth who is interested to make career in music and play some instruments.

We have compiled a list of our five favorite musicians from top three bands of Pepsi Battle of the Bands season two;

Daud Ramay of Roots:
Daud Ramay of Roots is one of the best drummers from Lahore. This guy actually started his music with a heavy metal band, something which also reflects in Roots. His band members come up from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, and this is the reason that he is a much known musician in underground music of not only Lahore but the whole country.

Meet Daud Ramay from Roots! Daud’s drumming speaks for itself with its cohesive chops and catchy beats! Here’s an exclusive session with Daud because #DaudKaSceneHai #PepsiBattleoftheBands
