“Sab Maya Hai”

Lyrics by Ibn-e-Insha & Shuja Haider
Originally composed by Attaullah Esakhelvi

Bringing the sounds of the soil to Season 10, Attaullah Esakhelvi & Sanwal Esakhelvi narrate a sordid tale of the depravity that finds itself within the realms of love and money. Attaullah Esakhelvi’s unique yet familiar folk tone and vocal stylings settle themselves into the soundscapes that Shuja Haider has designed as Sanwal’s young, powerful voice lifts the melody with his energy. Upon a backdrop of groovy and emotive backing vocals, accented with the banjo and flute, this song is a journey towards uncovering the truth.

Lyrics by Sajid Gul

A modern Sufi song, Rangrez encompasses the true meaning of devotional love. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan teams up with Sahir Ali Bagga to create magic with a fresh, new sound. The tabla flirts with the shehnai as a flurry of backing vocals paint a vibrant surrounding for Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s glowing and scintillating voice takes the foreground to bring out the rang and dhanak (tune) of the melody.
