Natasha Baig croons to the tunes of the soil with ‘Ho Mian’

Natasha Baig

After making a power-packed debut on Coke Studio Season 11 with ‘Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa,’ singer Natasha Baig has now released her latest single, ‘Ho Mian.’

Mixing her strong vocals with the Sufi lyrics, Natasha creates a powerful melody, which brings one to the fertile lands of the Indus as the literal pathways amalgamate with the transcendental connections of being one with God.

However, beyond the power of her vocals and the visuals, it is the Sufi aesthetic to the song, which makes it narrate beautifully the journey of self-realization and of finding God within us.

That said, one wishes that Natasha would have experimented with the ragas one could expect her to have, especially given how strong her performance on Coke Studio has been.

Check out the song here and tell us what you think:
