Extensive Definition

Rungg (Urdu: رنگ) is a Lahore based pop-rock band. Rung's debut album "Green" was released in Pakistan on April 1st 2006. Rung arrived on the local music scene in the year 2003 with their debut single "Hum Na". The video was nothing great – just another band performance – but the song itself was brilliant. Apart from some great guitaring and subtle keyboards that gave this song a romantic feel, "Hum Na" also used tablas and drums in a perfectly blended manner. Each of the two instruments had one beat that was audible throughout the song. And with Ifu's strong vocals as he sang "Meray Ho Tum Ho Na", "Mujh Mein Gum Tum Ho Na," Rung had indeed arrived on the music scene.
