When we say music, most of the people think at the great musicians from the eastern world. But what about the western music, I say? What about the Indian or the Pakistani music? I have noticed that only few people know some general information on Pakistani music. Well, this article is meant to change all that.
A genius man once said “Music makes one feel so romantic – at least it always gets on one’s nerves – which is the same thing nowadays”. The Pakistan people, I must say have been very fortunate to have so many big names of music. If you know something about it, I bet you know about Noor Jehan who charmed generations with her beautiful music. This woman had an extraordinary voice that could touch even the most evils souls. It was simply a gift from God. “These sons are not an ordinary entity sold in the market” is the translation of “aye putar hatan tay naiin wikday” the patriotic song broadcasted on every radio station after the 1965 war. Back then, in her glorious days, she was considered to be the icon of the Pakistani music
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was another voice people couldn’t get enough. This is also one of the most popular Pakistani Music celebrities. He sand so beautiful than even those that didn’t understand Pakistani at all listened to it. Some even consider him the main reason the Pakistani music survived. One sure fact is that, he is the reason Pakistani music made it to the open. He was the first to reach the international market and made Pakistani music popular in the world. Even now, years after his dead the Pakistani people talk about his music and his mysterious character.
