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.
