Early life and career

Abbas was born on 23 November 1978 in Islamabad, Pakistan to a musician's family. He joined a local band Amadeus at the age of fourteen and wrote his first song Qadam say Qadam for his band in 1987.[4] Abbas received training of Classical music from Fateh Ali Khan and began his career as a music composer. “My guru Ustad Fateh Ali Khan has been an exception in this regard. He taught me whatever I could absorb, which is why I was able to bridge intuition with influence,” said Abbas.[5][6] He released his debut independent album Sun Re in 2006 by which he gained popularity as a musician. He remained inactive for five years and made his comeback in 2012 with a single Per Main Hun Ruka Sa.[7][8] Abbas joined Coke Studio in 2014 and released his second independent album Tamaam Alam Mast (Entire Universe in Ecstasy) in the same year.[9] He told in an interview that Tamaam Alam Mast is a Sufi album with kalams in Urdu and Persian.[10] Abbas has also composed music for 2015 action thriller film Jalaibee and upcoming romantic comedy film Dekh Magar Pyar Se.[11]
