I sincerely believe that music is for soul, relaxation and to put across your feelings. It not only refreshes but makes us to go deep down somewhere we fit in. In the same way, composition of the tune plays vital role in the overall presentation and the final touch one gets at the end in the form of HIT SONGS, Number one on the music charts and most of all song’s popularity. A step ahead in this is to get recognition all over the world which is a big triumph when it comes to singing profession.
There is trend coming up to get in professional music studies, to have degree in music, to practice singing and to take it as a profession. There were days when musicians were considered as “Marasi” and there was no notion of professional music studies. Parents were never as encouraging as they are now. So many new bands and singers are emerging forcefully, in a sense that they are forced by the talent within, that they are not able to control further.
A name that has just emerged and came up with amazing voice that one can’t even defy listening her songs, a girl with so mature and strong voice that makes us think who is she? Where is she from? And the inquisitiveness continues. Her first song which was originally sung by Reshma came up so amazingly that in few days it was in every car, every house and on every lip.
It was “Quratul Ain Baloch – (QB)”, a name that was never heard before. She is an ordinary looking girl with very mature and astonishing voice. Her song “Akhiyan nu rain dey” came up with trillion likes. Her voice has something exceptional and out of the ordinary which has the ability to bring distress out of your heart. So natural and established that one could never say she is not a professional singer. She is the girl originally from Virginia, USA, could not stop her talent and came to Pakistan.
By listening to her songs it seems that more has to come which would be comparatively a blast. She is a favourable and remarkable addition to the music industry of Pakistan. QB did very few songs and
all of them are fabulous. Her track from the TV serial Humsafar is yet another significant achievement. This song has become so popular among youth especially girls that one cannot sit muted without humming the track. She has been doing an extra ordinary music in Pakistan and the chart of her fame is persistently elevating. Apart from all this QB has won “Pakistan Youngest Achievement Award” in UK and France in 2011 which is not less than an achievement for a new singer. Her Coke Studio session with Jal was fantastic and her voice made it more.
Pakistanis living outside Pakistan love when there artists gets recognition and awarded internationally, and artist like QB adds a bit more happiness and joy to their feelings and emotions not only through her recognition but through her unique voice. One can proudly say that this is QB and she is from Pakistan.
People like QB are taking Pakistani Music in a new direction, especially by singing those songs which where were originally sung by seniors artist like Reshma. The situation is now getting better by having such talented and versatile singer in music industry. We are waiting for new songs by QB in future as well.
