Amongst all the big music shows, there was also the quiet release of this rabab-driven Balochi nar sur trance. You really have to hear it once to have this rather literal description make sense in your head.
Nar Sur is the genre of throat singing perhaps most widely known in current times through Akhtar Chanal’s appearance on Coke Studio. It is performed here by Bujla Bugti and Haider Ali Bugti. This recording also features Khumariyaan, who are known for establishing a new wave of instrumental Pashtun music.
