Hor vi nevaan Ho

This is a popish-folkish song by a Pakistani band called Noori. Vocals are by Ali Hamza. Has lots of good intrumental sounds, espcially the Veena which is being played by mother of Ali Hamza. I had no idea that veena is still being played in Pakistan. Even in hindustani classical, veena has sort of receded in the background and sitar maestros are ruling the scape thanks to Amir khusro(?). Mridang also has met a similar fate thanks to Tabla. Veena is still dominant in the carnatic though.

What I dont like is towards the end it becomes very pop-ish and noisy. Mebbe I am disconnected with this generation's music ;)


He doesnt care about the light anymore
All he knows is
That he is in darkness
and he is burning.

I might have wanted you
but, I have stopped trying

You are killing me,
But I am anyway dying.
