A few of my favourite things...(II)

We'd probably never get to hear melody queen Abida Perveen sing live and would perhaps go back with just a couple of happy memories of seeing Rahat Fateh Ali Khan or Zeb and Haniya perform live. Still, give me Pakistani music any day.

Here's a list of some favourites -- though the one I played the most during my stay here is Laal's Mainen Ussey Yeh Kaha.

Zeb and Haniya
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Abida Perveen
Nayyara Noor
Iqbal Bano


  1. If you could enlighten me - why can't you listen to Abida Parveen live in Pak? I mean, she performs housefull concerts in India too.

  2. Ambika, performances are few and far between. More so in Islamabad. I am more hopeful of hearing her live in India some day!
