Sanam Marvi

Sanam Marvi is one of the youngest and most popular classical singers from the interior of Sindh. Her father was the renowned singer Fakir Ghulam Rasool and hence she was inculcated into classical singing at a very young age. Having studied Sufi poetry extensively, Marvi aims to spread the Sufic belief in love and peace through her music to global and local audiences. Marvi is in her element with compositions of mystics such as Baba Bulleh Shah, Baba Sheikh Farid, Sachal Sarmast and one of the greatest poets of the Sindhi language, Shah Abdul Latif.

Entity Paradigm

The underground circuit may have been small, but Entity Paradigm (EP) is Lahore’s most famous success story for the nation. Known for playing varied genres, such as alternative rock, rap and rock fusion, its debut album Irtiqa was regarded as the first mainstream concept album to be released by a Pakistani act. After a three-year-long hiatus, EP announced its official return in 2009. The current line-up, which includes Fawad Khan, Ahmed Ali Butt, Salman Albert, Waqar Ahmed Khan and Hassaan Khalid, is working on its second album.
