By Khaya Ahmed:Jal led a worldwide musical revolution in 2002 with their hit single Aadat and after many subsequent highs and lows; the band is back with front-man Goher Mumtaz releasing Khel Sajna, the headlining soundtrack for the drama, Neelum Kinarey.
The drama, set in the beautiful Neelum Valley of Azad Jammu & Kashmir is directed by Adnan Wai Qureshi and produced by Mehroz Karim; the dynamic duo who were responsible for Aashti, a drama that centered on the Bengali community of Pakistan. Neelum Kinarey, currently airing on Hum TV also stars Goher who long ago proved that he was more than just a powerhouse vocalist with his ventures into acting as well as modeling.
The story of Neelum Kinarey is, in its essence, a love story of a Kashmiri girl who falls for a boy. However it seems that destiny has other plans for the two of them as it throws a few little twists into the mix. Khel Sajna does a wonderful job of not only conveying the story of this epic tale of love, but this melodious track also manages to capture the rich and vibrant culture of Kashmir. Goher’s voice is a treat to listen to as it mingles with the customary sounds of the rubab and the bass; effortlessly transporting a part of the listener to one of the most beautiful places in Pakistan.
As an artist whose primary goal is to promote Pakistani music, Goher Mumtaz displays his love for the art time and time again. His latest single is no exception, Khel Sajna can be streamed and downloaded right here on Taazi.
