With Episode 04, the season hurtles towards its final stages of attainment and achievement as the process takes an existence.
‘Form’, the fourth session, will feature folk music traditions of varied flavors, local and exotic, sedate and grandiose along with a distinct pop-rock number. Tune in to witness Noori’s rendition of ‘Hor Vi Neevan Ho’, an evocative tribute to the legendary folk singer Hamid Ali Bela.

In their purest rock avatar, Karavan gears up to deliver ‘Kaisay Mumkin Hai’’ where acoustics will be traded with electric guitars and backing vocalists will be accompanying the band in this version. Re-affirming their repo for bringing in the flavors of exotic lands, Zeb & Haniya maintain the strong undercurrents of folk music with ‘Nazaar Eyle’.
A folk story from Turkey, the song aims to reflect the rich heritage of subcontinent, derived from disparate cultures. Spontaneity, sweetness and verve are all thrown together as Amanat Ali and Sanam Marvi pair up in the fast-paced ‘Haq Maujood’. The kalam by Sachal Sarmast is set to a tune inspired from the traditional Sindhi dhamal rhythm and will also be featuring a drum solo towards the finale by our very own drumming icon Gumby.

Based on a true love story of the same name, Mirza Sahibaan’ is a fusion of folk with rock in its very essence — theatrical and grand.
