"The legendary guitarist the magician Amir Zaki just passed away. Recite Fatiha for departed soul," confirmed one of his relatives on Twitter.
The former Vital Signs member’s death was also confirmed by relatives including his brother Shahid Zaki.
He was known for his melodic phrasing, feel, and tone. His debut album Signature was released in 1995, and Zaki was awarded a gold disc by Soundcraft UK for it.
The musician, who made his overdue debut on Coke Studio in 2014, was last seen in action performing at the two-day long I Am Karachi Music Festival.
Signature was an independent release. He put his own money into releasing this high-risk venture. The first CD batch was made in England. Sonic released Signature in Pakistan. The album was an immediate success. And for the first time in the region, guitar instrumentals made it to the households through FM radio.
Fans on Twitter started extending their condolences and expressing grief over the untimely demise of the maestro as soon as the news surfaced on social media.
