CD Review: Fareeha Anwar's 'Sayooeni'

Fareeha Anwar
Sachal Music

Pakistan’s Fareeha Anwar is a hip, young, fresh vocalist coming out of Pakistan. Sayooeni is a two-song release of two different remixes of the song originally composed by Salim Iqbal. The original singer was Zubaida Khannum. It is characteristically Bollywood in all regards—from the tabla, sitar, Spanish guitar, sarod, bass, violin, viola, cello, and assorted percussion, to the catchy, clear Hindi vocals. The eight-minute album includes the Hindi lyrics. For a great invitation to Fareeha’s music, Sayooeni is a gem. ~ Matthew Forss
