Haftanama Patari

IMG_1821


Ek aur hafta, ek aur Haftanama. Hope you’re not bored with us… hain bhi to koi baat nahi, bardasht kar lein. Did you know, Muniba Mazari has the voice of an angel? Check out her cover of Noor Jehan’s song Silsilay Tor Gaya: beautifully done!

Lahore Se Aagey ka OST bhi lazmi check keejiye ga – a road-comedy starring the ever radiant Saba Qamar and the hilarious Yasir Hussain. Pretty boys Ali Noor and Ali Hamza’s new song Yeh Zindagi in collaboration with Cornetto Pop Rock is out and Ganda Banda And The 3 Dead Cats’ album is perfect for this (zabardasti ki) autumn. Imagine sitting in your reading chair, chai by your side, book in your hand and these mellow acoustic sounds playing on your Patari app.

You know what they say about saving the best for last, Asrar’s new track Sag-e-Ali is out on your Patari. We dare you to listen to it once and if you don’t like it… koi baat nahi, what does it can be.

‘Haathi mera saathi’ to suna ho ga, per kya ‘Jeewan Haathi‘ ka pata hai aap ko? Iss lame introduction pe mat jayen, please do check out the film OST for yourself. Aside from this, our Top New Releases PL has new tracks for you to enjoy, and we’ve also added a new PL:New on Patari. Every month, we’ll introduce new artists to you through this compilation. 

Ali Azmat’s Social Circus, SomeWhatSuper’s Modi Teri, Ammar Rashid’s cover of Kithay Nain, Ashiq Hussain Qawwal’s ghazalsEp. 12 of How To Pakistan aaaaand lastly Ali Da Malang PL is this week’s peshkash.

Social media pe yaad rakhiye ga, shukriya.


Ashiq Hussain Qawwal

aashiq hussain tile 6All of us at Patari are dedicated to preserving our country’s musical culture. There’s so much that has been lost and only lives on in our grandparents’ memories. We cannot be another generation of grandparents who only remember the musical hits of their times because of the sharpness of their minds and how far back we can remember. When we call Patari an ecosystem, we mean exactly that.

With that in mind, meet Ashiq Hussain Qawwal. A student (and one of our friends) discovered Ashiq Hussain on his brief layover at Cholistan on his way to Karachi. He was so mesmerised by his voice that he specially went to the qawwal’s house and recorded his ghazals. Patari proudly presents Ashiq Hussain Qawwal’s recorded album.


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”.

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
unnamed

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.

Dastangoi – A Patari Podcast


PosterEbby

Dastangoi, A Patari Podcast, is a collaborative effort of the Dastangoi team (Asaad Lutfi & Iqra Jafri) and Patari. Aiming to revive the mesmerizing tradition of Urdu and Hindi storytelling, season 1 is ‘Azadi’, focused on the partition of India and Pakistan. Dastangoi is based on short stories of Manto and other Pak-India literary geniuses about 1947 and we’ll be featuring new episodes every Thursday. The first episode ‘Khol Do‘ by Manto went live last week.


Kitty Ki Khaas Peshkash

So we asked our lazy team to get off their bums and make a new playlist for you: Patari Picks. It’s basically songs we like that we’re telling you to listen to. In nicer words, ‘a selection of recent releases picked by the Patari editorial team’. They’re awesome songs, go check them out if you want to update your own playlists because we have great taste, okay?

Remembering Sabeen

savbeen


For Sabeen

We spoke for the last time only hours before she was brutally, senselessly murdered. Like always, she had a million things on her plate, and like always she still managed to make time. Back then, Patari was yet to launch, yet to convince a lot of skeptical people, but Sabeen believed. Not only did she believe, she was one of our principal supporters, showcasing our product at the London-based festival that she was curating.

When I look back at that moment now, the thing that strikes me the most is how ubiquitous my experience, and even Patari’s experience was with Sabeen. In the decade or so that I knew her, I met scores of people who she had mentored, nurtured and trained and who are now successful in a vast range of fields. Activists, writers, journalists, poets, musicians, dancers, filmmakers – so much of Karachi’s cultural scene was built by people who were there because of her.   That was perhaps the most profound thing that the murderer took from us; not just a wonderful person, but a source of hope, a pillar of inspiration and someone who transcended our myriad little scenes and brought them all together. Sabeen was one of those invisible cogs that entire societies revolve around, the force of her personality setting entire planets in motion.

This week’s homepage tribute to Sabeen features four playlists that she had commissioned from us. They provide a window into her vivacious, brilliant personality and her innate sense of fun. And much as the heart breaks for her not being here, we feel this is the best way we could remember her. Someone who brought us joy, delight and laughter.

– Ahmer Naqvi.

32nd Haftanama Patari

When tragedies like these hit, it’s all we can do not to buckle and wilt under the breathtaking assault on our country, our people – most of all, our children. Senseless loss, senseless blood spilled and for what? We’ll condemn these attacks on social media endlessly but to what purpose? Some days, it feels like we have nothing left to live for.

On days like these, there’s only one way forward: honor the precious lives lost. Acknowledge, mourn, remember and keep making it through because that is the sole means of survival sometimes. Call it resilience, call it denial, call it plain old stubbornness – it’s necessary. Pakistan has been at war with terrorism for years now, and no matter how chaotic, ugly, brutally cruel this war gets – we have a purpose: to stand united against it, to honor those we lost and to #NeverForget.

Let us pray for those dearly departed souls, and let us remember them by living truly, living honestly and living with love.
