Meesha Shafi is one of those Pakistani singers who has risen like a Phoenix during this difficult period of a pandemic. Though she wasn’t around in the beginning of the year but she has given us back-to-back hit numbers during the last four weeks. After her mesmerizing performances in Velo Sound Station and Coke Studio 2020, the hopes were high when she announced a fifth track in collaboration with Mughal-E-Funk and she has delivered beyond expectations.

Closing the year with another bang, Sakal Ban Phool Rahi Sarson is just the tune we need to hear. With the great Amir Khusro’s potent poetry packaged in Meesha’s powerful vocals, the song will transport you in a different world. The video of the song, magnificently directed by Umar Riaz, has a contemporary vibe with colorful lights and mystic dance performances by The Sway Dance Project.




The imagery has done full justice to the lyrics that talk about welcoming new beginnings, celebrating and feeling alive in the moment. Meesha’s appears in close shots with a statement look featuring glittery eyeshadows and big jhoomar on her head.

“Going back to my Sufi Indie music roots with this delicious track and video. Making this track and video has given me so much joy! Just like the message of the song. It’s a time to feel alive. To celebrate. To dance. A time to welcome in new beginnings with open arms and an open heart,” she wrote about the song.

With Rakae Jamil on sitar, Kami Paul on drums and percussions, Farhan Ali on bass, Rufus Shahzad on keyboards and synths, Sakal Ban has a modern beat with classical undertones; this is going to be a tune that will echo in your ears.
