And her rendition of the legend Abida Parveen’s epic kalaams, Gharoli and Ghoom Charakha has left Pakistanis in complete awe, TBH!
The cover is not intense just because of Tehseen’s powerful, and equally soulful voice, but also because of the rock meets sufi elements in the song.
The drums and the electric guitars, coming together with the tablas and the chitrali sitar, is a treat to the ears and take you in a trance of its own kind!
Tehseen has been practicing on her skill for years, and her father has been mentoring her through it all.
She grew up in an environment which helped encourage her skill and helped her learn more about the intricacies of a soulful kalaam. According to her, you have to be in a zone in order to create the feel for the listeners.
And that’s not all, the song also blessed us with two incredibly talented twins whose presence you can’t ever ignore: Asim and Adil Baluch.
Their vocals have given this song a new life altogether, and made it as legendary as it is!
This song fits for a grand closing of the season too, given that this is one genre that the entire season didn’t explore. But hey, the best for last, no?
People can’t help but being reminded of Abida Parveen, whose song has been done tremendous justice.
People are living for the epic combo, TBH!
And of course, the twins didn’t go unnoticed!
But all in all, NESCAFÉ Basement has truly showed the colors of Pakistan in the most beautiful way possible!
All of us can’t help but think about how blessed we have been to experience music so tremendous and soul-stirring, and thank NESCAFÉ for bringing a new life to the Pakistani music scene.
