Haftanama Patari


Patari ki jaanib se sab users aur fans ko dilli mubarak baad, since we have collectively crossed another milestone by signing a partnership with Facebook! More on that later.
On the local agenda for today, we have new playlists for Coke Studio 9’s music directors, all of which can be found in our ‘Top’ Section.  If your love for Urdu precedes your lack of knowledge of the language, listen to this week’s episode of Manto’s podcast of Thanda Gosht. It is advised that you keep an Urdu dictionary or a grandparent at hand.

Our Muharram Compilations are up on the homepage: Nohay, manqabat, covers of Munn Kunto Maula, and the tragedy of Karbala in Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan‘s voice.

Mushkil Asaana

A Pashto and Urdu manqabat by Hadiqa Kiani, featuring the poetry of her late father, Mahmud Akhtar Kiani. Composed by Hadiqa herself, the Pashto kalaam was written & composed by the late Rafiq Shinwari: Mushkil Aasaana.

Music Stories
unnamed (1)

All of us at Patari are super excited to announce our partnership with Facebook, for a new initiative called Music Stories. It was a process that took 7 months of technical and legal efforts to ensure that our 100% #MadeInPakistan platform was up to vilayti standards, and much like Mohammad Amir’s bowling, we were. Not only have we managed to legalize Pakistani music, we have done it to international standards!

So now, every time you share a Patari link on Facebook, you’ll see a preview window which will let you listen to the song without leaving Facebook. It’s a huge step for us to be chosen by Facebook (have we said Facebook enough times?) to be their partners in Pakistan, and should be a great way to introduce more people to Pakistani music.

Next time you’re in Palo Alto (Inshallah aap ke aisay khwaab jald pooray hon) and there’s a party at the Zuckerbergs, waltz in and if security tries to hassle you, just take out your Patari app, wave it in their faces and go “Nighat pliz, mei Mark ka/ki personal friend hun”.
