Shehnai the story of rural and arid North Punjab
Shehani is the instrument of choice on weddings in arid Northern Punjab. It is heart rendering when it is combined with Dhol. Now a days Zulfiqar Malangi is one of the best Dholi in North Punjab, who is keeping one our innocent tradition alive, with some justice . The song in question seems more like lamenting than expressing happiness, however it tells the story of hard life of people in North Punjab. I hope you will enjoy the song. Geo Zulfiqar.
