Pakistani rockstar Ali Zafar has released his latest song in Pashto, featuring the beautiful Gul Panra and Fortitude Pukhtoon Core.
The group has come together for a remake of the famous Pashto song Larsha Peshawar. In 2012, singer Humayun Khan recreated the same song for Coke Studio Season 5. As soon as the song was released on 22nd September on YouTube, just before Pukhtun cultural day, it began to circulate online for its catchy tune and started trending as #1 for music in Pakistan yesterday.
Pakhtun culture is native to Afghanistan and the land of northwestern Pakistan. It is based on Pashtunwali – an ancient way of life. Pakhtun’s speak the Pashto language and dress up in special Pakhtun dresses. The Pashtun culture day is celebrated on the 23rd of September every year.
Ali posted a message for his fans on his social media platforms. He said, “My message for my Pakhtun brothers and sisters. Hello to all my Pukhtun fans. I’ve made this song Larsha Pekhawar ta for my beautiful pakhtun fans. I hope you love it.” He added, “My humble tribute to a great people with one of the most vibrant, honorable, and powerful cultures in the world.”
