Note from the Editor
Hamnawa features curation, reviews, and analysis of Pakistani pop music. We focus on music old and new, famous and obscure, pop and not-so-pop.
I first started writing about Pakistani pop over 10 years ago. The overarching thesis of Hamnawa is that the arc of Pakistani music is a story not just of music, but of technology, business, and politics. And while various societal factors influence the direction of Pakistani music, it cannot be understood with a global lens only. This particular narrative has a unique historical trajectory. A story of its own to be told.
