Pakistan will celebrate 75 years of glory, freedom, and independence on 14th August 2022. On the occasion of the country’s Diamond Jubilee, crooners from across the nation have come together to create a national anthem like never before.
These fantastic singers will not only be dressed in national attire representing their culture and backgrounds but will also add the beautiful factor of ‘inclusivity’.
“Formed in July 2021 and mandated by the present Government, the Steering Committee has endeavoured to bring to Pakistan a re-recording of the original National Anthem that reflects updated inclusivity in sound, voice and spirit, while ensuring the sanctity of the original words and composition,” the announcement read on the official national anthem 75 Instagram page.
Honouring the 75th anniversary of Pakistan’s independence, the committee has vowed to enlist vocalists from diverse regional, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, from all religious faiths and musical genres.
“It is intended that the re-recording in 2022 becomes an occasion to bring together the rich diversity of the nation to express the unique national identity and solidarity of the people of Pakistan.”
The original anthem was composed by Ahmed G. Chagla and written by poet Abdul Hafeez Jalandhari and officially recorded in 1954 with limited resources at the time.
This time around the anthem is ready to feature these amazing vocalists:
Sehar Gul Khan
Many more will join the talented lot in re-creating the anthem this year, including Fakhir Mehmood from Karachi, Fariha Pervez, RJ Jia Nauman from Islamabad, Zohaib Zaman from Azad Kashmir, etc.
