Hot Mango Chutney Sauce
If you needed proof that joyousness alone could be a diss track, Meesha delivers.
The lyrics are self-deprecatory confrontation. The production – a forward push for both Meesha and Abdullah Siddiqui. The video – more memorable visual work from Awais Gohar and Hashim Ali.
It’s interesting to compare this song to Amrit, one of Meesha’s songs from Velo Sound Station last year. It is possible to see how roots of the same events lead to the emotions in both songs. Amrit is also rousing, but in a more introspective way. In Hot Mango Chutney Sauce the wordless vocal searching is replaced with lighthearted rap. The adjustment in tone frees Meesha from the chains which are literally and figuratively alluded to in Amrit.
