[Pakistan, 25 July 2014]: Pakistani musician Maha Ali Kazmi, who first made her debut with ‘Nazar’ in 2013, introduces her latest single ‘Jana Nahi’, releasing nationwide on audio and video on Eid-ul-Fitr 2014.

Maha Ali Kazmi Jana Nahi

‘Jana Nahi’ portrays love and parting; a bitter end to what could have been beautiful and a harmonious union of hearts; a song in the remembrance of love found, love lost; something that turns the fate around, that leaves a trail of memories, some bitter, some sweet, along the path of dreams of yesterday and yonder, where its video represents a girl in pursuit of love. The concept behind the video is derived from the feeling one gets while awakening from a very pleasant dream. For a few seconds, you are disconnected from the harsh realities of life; and then it dawns upon you that it was just a dream.

Born in Karachi and a self-taught artist, Maha started writing songs at the age of 16 following which she graduated in Finance & Macroeconomics/Management from Monash University, Melbourne – Australia. In 2013, Maha was selected as the backup vocalist for Cornetto Music Icon where she performed alongside artists such as Ali Azmat, Strings and Alamgir to name a few.

Written and composed by Maha Ali Kazmi, the music video for Jana Nahi has been directed by film-maker and photographer Aania Shah with wardrobe by Adnan Pardesy, hair & make-up by N-Pro and features Usman Malkani as the Director of Photography.

On the launch of Jana Nahi, Maha has said, “This is a special occasion for me. Even though I started writing songs as young as 16 years old, this was my first Urdu song which I composed and wrote myself. I never thought I’d ever pull it off however with support from family and friends this was possible. Jana Nahi is about love and parting; a bitter end to what could have been beautiful and a harmonious union of hearts; a song in the remembrance of love found, love lost; something that turns the fate around, that leaves a trail of memories, some bitter, some sweet, along the path of dreams of yesterday and yonder.”
