Farewell Karavan (1997 – 2011)
To all the fans,
After 15 years of rocking you, with Rakh Aas all the way till Saara Jahan last year, we feel the time has come to say goodbye. The reasons are many but in a nutshell i think all of us want to do our own thing musically, domestically and otherwise. We are all grateful for your support and hope you will remember us because we will never forget you!
Keep on Rockin’
Goodbye Karavan, we will truly miss you guys!
