Lesson 9: Shah Laila Rasha

23 Comments

Well these delays are getting longer and longer, so apologies once again, its becoming really difficult to take time out anymore. BUT thanks A LOT to all of you who have been sending messages of encouragement and visiting regularly, keep practicing and I will try my level best to update this as frequently as I can.

Anyway without much further ado, here is the classic “Shah laila Rasha sor paizwan pa shondo sro kaida” I don’t know where you heard it for the first time, but to me it reminds me of Gulzar’s voice on a white audio tape, that I played out loud from my sony tape recorder. I actually found a picture of the one that I had. So for the video I did a quick search on Youtube, but amazingly could not find much apart from those recent raunchy tele movies. But then I stumbled upon one with Mussarat Shaheen and Badar Munir, dunno the name of the movie, but the video has the classic 80s raunch that was the hallmark of the Mussarat Shaheen and Badar Munir duo.

Here is the complete chart with the list of surs

Now the complete version from Yaar Gul Ustaaz

Lesson 8: Gudara Wran Shay

17 Comments

Apologies once again for such a long delay!

Today’s lesson is this really old song, that Yaar Gul Ustaad hums a lot. Searched on YouTube for a video, but what I could find was this one really old version. The identity of the singer is not certain because there are two differing claims for the same song; this one video claims that her name is Naveeda Khan and this other one calls her Rehana Yasmeen if anyone can confirm, then do let me know. Also found this Rabab version from Shoukath Ustaaz with friends, really nice one.

So here is the lesson for today, keep practicing!

Lesson 7: Paikhawar Kho Paikhawar They Kana

14 Comments

Salamoona!

First of all I apologize for the long delay. The last post was more than a month ago, and the absence was because of a variety of distractions, most of which were unavoidable. Thank you so much for your messages of appreciation, they help a lot in getting motivated.

But in any case, here is the lesson for today: Paikhawar kho Paikhawar They Kana

As a Peshawarite, I am personally of the opinion that this song is the best musical dedication to my sweet Paikhawar. Here is the original video, with a tour of Paikhawar, there also is a concert version of the same. But the most interesting one is this one by this American band called The PashTones.

As usual, here is the chart with all the surs used for today

and here is the complete version from Yaar Gul Ustaad

Now the break up.

1- Main:

Lesson 5: Ma Ta Pa Speena

10 Comments

Today’s lesson is that old classic “Ma Ta Pa Speena Khula Khandal Makawa”. The oldest video that I could find is one that features Javed Akhtar and Mashooq Sultan, its probably from the 60s. An Urdu version was sung by Ali Haider; titled Zalim Nazroon Say Tum Na Mujh Ko Dekho, which became a mega hit in the late 90s. As students at Quaid I Azam University in those days, my friends and I used to regularly do Attan on “Zalim Nazroon Say“. There also is a fusion version on rabab, that is done by Homayun Ustaad.

Anyway for this lesson, we are uploading separate sur charts for each of the three parts i.e. main body, piece and misra.

So start practicing! And do let us know how you are progressing!

Note: We specially thank an anonymous editor who volunteered to painstakingly correct the paragraph above. What you see right now is a result of many painful iterations, that resulted in high blood pressure for our editor. We thank our editor for this support and hope for more of the same in the future. I hope our editor is satisfied with this effort.

Full Song

So here is a list of all the surs that will be used today followed by the full song from Yaar Gul Ustaad.

So here it goes,

Ma ta pa Speena Khula Khandal Makawa                   Murr Ba Ma Kay

Lesson 4: Zma Khkulay Janana

7 Comments

The song for today is the classic folk Zma Khkula Janana, the version that I heard while growing up was the one by Sardar Ali Takkar, but a little bit of search on youtube revealed this one by Rahim Ghamzada which I think predates the version by Takkar. But both are great to listen to, anyway here is Yaar Gul Ustaad playing the full song.

and now the chart for the parday to be used in today’s lesson.

Sir Nama (Main Body):
