Pakistani sufi maestro Abida Parveen will join Dubai’s Malhaar in free virtual concert. The legendary singer will join Malhaar Baithak, a monthly concert series, virtually from Pakistan to celebrate her birthday month.
The 67-year-old mystic singer will reflect on various facets of her musical journey with the Malhaar Baithak viewers, while the Malhaar artists will perform some of her famous compositions during the concert.
Jogiraj Sikidar, Founder-Director of Malhaar said: “It’s a dream come true for me and our Baithak audience. Personally, I am a big fan of Abida saheba. If you see my playlist, you will find that majority of the songs in my top-10 numbers are Abida ji’s compositions. She moves her audience to a higher plane every time.”
Some of the timeless compositions that are part of Malhaar Baithak playlist, include ‘Jabse Tu Ne Mujhe Deewana Bana Rakha Hai’, ‘Teray Ishq Nachaya’, ‘Ji Chahe Tu Sheesha Ban Ja’, to compositions from her collaborative work with Gulzar on ‘Kabir — Man Laago Yar Fakeeri’ to compositions from Pakistan Coke Studio’s collaborative work ‘Aaqa’, to name a few.
