Arooj AftabArooj Aftab is the second Pakistani after Mekaal Hasan, who studied in Berklee School Of  Music on a Steve Vai Scholarship. She is an acclaimed Sufi Musician, Vocalist and Songwriter and has paid tribute to Sufi Legends like Abida Parveen and Reshma.

The famous western musician Steve Vai has said about Arooj: “A girl like this, with drive and ability and goals, she’s going to inspire a lot of people. That’s how you get evolution.”

I am sharing here today his latest new live performance, and wondering If she should be part of Coke Studio Season 4 or not ? would definitely like to hear from you as some/many people also call this artist ‘over-rated’. What do you say ? Over-rated or under-rated ? Is she really a Coke Studio material ? or I have lost my mind today.

Enjoy the performance now: *not easy stuff to digest* (more…)

Then later in 2008, Atif Aslam revived this great track to give tribute to Reshma in Lux Style Awards . (more…)
