What is a dhamaal without a solid groove? Shuja Haider paints this evergreen kalaam with fresh, vibrant colors through a tight percussive section and warm, grooving bass. Jabar Abbas’s pristine timbre and lush modulations woven with Umair Jaswal’s textured vocal stylings makes for the perfect ingredients for this emotional, high-energy rendition. The goonj of the percussions finds itself resonating with the urgent pounding of the heart as an anthemic chorus of humnawa and backing vocalists color the soundscape with the drive of the kalaam. With a playful pocket and an intricately designed arrangement, the rendition serves to elevate its listeners to another realm.
