Patari per ronaq mela has started as Cornetto Pop Rock Season 2 has arrived. Komal Rizvi nay chittay kuker ki shaan main “Yeh Kya Hua” gaya hai. Track tau track, video is simply brilliant as Komal ka raqs bohat dilfaraib hai. It’s a song for this year’s wedding season!


Patari has Guru Lahori’s new song “Woh” produced by Afraah Tafreeh Music and trust us, dhamal paa ditta boys nay! Zayada yeh woh na karain aur ja k forun sunain “Woh”.


O kithay? Sit down as we have a brilliant album “Elhaam” of Sounds Of Kolachi. It’s a collection of 8 brilliant tracks hitting different chords of mysticism and love.


If there is one song you need to listen and praise, it’s “Fiction” by Abdullah Siddiqui. He’s only 17 and his voice is behtareen. Produced by Foreversouth Music,  this is the song for peaceful and serene getaways.


Qisa khatam, paisa hazam. Before we leave, we would like to share a wisdom quote: “Bilawajha haarnay walay ko Lahore Qalandars kehtay hain.” Tata tey bye bye.

Patari Tabeer Finale!

Ay phool mere phool ko yeh phool daina aur kehna Pyarnama aa gaya hai. Happy Valentine’s Day, folks!


Aur phir wo din aa gaya when we released the finale of #PatariTabeer. Yes, Patari Tabeer’s 6th episode is on your homepage and waiting to be part of your saved tracks because it is so fantastic! Tora Baram Khana by Malala Gul from KP ends the first volume of #PatariTabeer. Malala fights through deteriorating political circumstances, negotiating tensions of gender, modesty, and ultimately hope. Watch her story here. We hope to begin again the same way this volume ends – with a hope like Malala’s.


Although Valentine’s Day guzer chuka hai but if you think you still love your bae to phir suniye our special Valentine’s Day section *ayeein hayeein*. For all those jin ki bed sheet bhe double hai but wo khud single hain, we have a special Forever Alone playlist for you.


We know you’re enjoying PSL 2017 banter but if you need more mirch masala and savage analysis of teams and players, K2Kricket – PSL Special Edition is the podcast for you. It’s funny, brutally honest and  funny again because we have ran out of adjectives as it is so good!


Aj kay liye itna he. We say Allah Hafiz on a note that ap pyaray hain, udhaar pyara nahi!

Patari Tabeer & Year In Review

Hi {name}

Hum phir aa gaye but is baar ek tabeer k sath. Patari Tabeer!


A project that has been over eight months in the making, Patari Tabeer is almost ready to be released. Par yeh hai kya?

Well, Patari Tabeer is the culmination of six dreams. We brought together voices from those areas of Pakistan that the mainstream forgets about, and paired them with top producers to make six amazing songs. They include a sweeper from Islamabad, a rapper from Lyari, a peon from Sukkur, a tea-seller from Sibbi, a young girl from Peshawar and nomadic singers from inner Sindh.
We will start releasing these songs from this week, so stay tuned to our social media pages. But tab tak ke liye, enjoy the gorgeous cover art for the project, designed by the marvellous Shehzil Malik.


Wondering what 2017 has for you? Chorain jee as Patari brings you Year In Review. Jee haan, konsa artist the hit, konsa tha miss. Kisne kiya apka replay button tehes-nehes? Everything is available in Patari’s Year In Review 2016Not only this but you can also view your own year in music.


This week’s homepage ko yes karayein as we have 3 new albums and an exclusive track by Zameer “Oh Yea!”. Acha bus. Ab aglay haftay. Hamaray sath rahiye ga!


Until the next Haftanama –
Dhayr sara pyaar

Patari Tabeer went to Faisalabad!

Hi {name}

We hope we have landed in your email and you are happy to see us. If not to bohat afsos ki baat hai.


What has Patari been doing? Well, Patari Tabeer went to Punjab this time around and Nazar Gill’s self-penned Jugni, 4th song of Patari Tabeer,  was released. Nazar Gill, a house cleaner, who wanted the world to hear his voice, knocked on the door of his employer, and asked him to hear a song he had written, called Jugni. That was the moment that gave birth to #PatariTabeer. Jugni is a beautiful collaboration between Nazar and Farhan Zameer. Dil melt hoga ap ka sun kay. Nazar ki story kya hai? Idher daikhain.


If you haven’t updated Patari app, you must do it right away as new update daikh k ap ki aankhain chamak jayein gi. Jee haan, Patari now has a separate literature section including audiobooks, poetry and podcast. Mazay he mazay!


Important ailaan: Patari Tabeer’s 5th episode will be released sometime this week. Stay tuned for stunning scenes from inner Sindh.


Chalain bus kafi baat cheet hogai. We will get back to our day dreaming.


Until the next Haftanama –

Straight Outta Lyari and baarish!

Hi {name}

Umeed hai ap sab theek hongey aur barish main samosay kha raye hongey. If not then it’s your loss.


To start with our khabarnama, third episode of Patari Tabeer has been released. Players Of Lyari is Pakistan’s fiercest football scene told through the defiance of Balochi rap. A collaboration of Lyari Underground and Dynoman, Players Of Lyari is about the mistreatment of Lyari’s footballers, and how their talent is wasted. Beat aisi bumboo hai k Cristiano Ronaldo bhe Lyari Underground join ker lay! Full video k liye yahan jayein aur ja k share bhe karain.


Its time to throw your worries away and learn to live in the moment with a smile on your face with PEPSI’s new campaign #JeeLayHarPal. First song of this campaignJee Lay Har Pal” by Atif Aslam is definitely going to make your day. 


Is k ilawa don’t miss a beautiful collaboration of Irfan Ali Taj and Zoe Viccagi Dunya Ju Baso straight from the mountains of Chitral. Also, Asim Azhar has unintentionally given us a perfect song for Valentine’s Day “Khuwaish“. Bae ka dil yeh gana sun k melt na hua to paisay wapas!


Ab bus hum baarish enjoy karnay ja raye hain. Koi extra samosa ho to please share! 


Until the next Haftanama –

New Year & Investment!

Happy New Year, people! You all be mankind angel this year and spread love, pliss.

Paish-e-Khidmat kuch azeem playlists: Best of 2016.


But wait uss se pehlay ek bohat eham breaking news hai hamaray pass…

Meri muthi main band hai kya? Bata do na! The biggest news of this century!

We got funded! Yes, Patari got funded *wehshi luddi*. The money train has arrived and ALL THIS MONIES ARE BELONG TO US!

From “Dekhi jaye gi” to investment by a group of amazing investors under the banner of Sarmayakar, Patari’s journey has been a rollercoaster with too many emotional breakdowns, sleepless nights and moments of “Ya Allah, kyun”. With an investment of $200, 000 by Sarmayakaar, mashaAllah, chashm-e-bad’door etc, Patari can now be found on cloud 9. We thank everyone who believed in us, Plan9 and of course our dearest doodh jalebi listeners and fans for supporting us through and through.


PSL is just around the corner and we are super excited to have PSL’s official song  “Ab Khel Jamay Ga” by Ali Zafar. Dance karain taakay thand kum lagay aur gas bachay.


Until the next Haftanama –
Dhayr sara pyaar

Hasan Abbas – Streams of Soan

Music has always had a cathartic value for me.

It has also served as an outlet to learn, experience and share my thoughts and feelings with the world. That said, I feel blessed that my evolution as a musician has always had a positive support amongst my family, friends and listeners who have helped me and inspired me as this evolution has continued.

Not All Who Wander Are Lost - Cover

With that, as times have changed and with the experience and perspective I have acquired, I have made a conscious and deliberate decision to refresh and reinvigorate my musical image.

With Streams of Soan (S.o.S), I hope to embark on a new journey as I prepare to release a new E.P and actively work with other musicians and a dedicated team to realize this new journey of my passion.

I hope you all are as excited as I am as a new chapter begins – stay tuned on Patari and Facebook for all upcoming updates about my music: Streams of Soan

[After getting his super secret agent cover blown, Hasan Abbas comes up with a new name: Streams of Soan! Here's a link to his previous work: http://patari.pk/home/artist/Hasan-Abbas]
