Natasha Baig is a new voice hailing from the discovered heaven of Pakistan-Hunza Valley. She has conquered various genres of music with most prominently dominating Sufi rock. Natasha became recognised with her song Ya Maula which is in the Burushaki language. The singer is most known for her rendition of Allama Iqbal’s Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa on Coke Studio 11, which she sang with Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad Qawwal.
This time she has touched several hearts with her musical tribute to Allama Iqbal.
“We only know about Allama Iqbal through our history books, and that’s it. After performing ‘Jawab e Shikwa’ in Coke Studio, I got a chance to read his writings and realized we have limited information on his revolutionary work. He is not just a poet; he has a Sufi side to him and was a pure artist.” Said Natsha Baig in an interview. The singer began working on her album Khirad which is a tribute to the poet Allama Iqbal.
The album consists of nine songs and is available on Spotify. Several artists have recognised the work of Allama Iqbal in the past. The poet’s magic is not only known in Pakistan but around the world. Being a new voice in the competitive music industry Natasha Baig has stepped forward with her soulful voice to pay her tribute to the national poet.
