Sara Haider

saraRoommate suggestions are always interesting.

My roommate introduced me to the incredible Sara Haider. Sara is a singer-songwriter from Pakistan and is great at what she does. She has a beautiful song with the talented Ali Zafar singing 'Ae dil kisi ki yaad mein' for Coke Studio. You can check it here.

But what I really loved and made me write this post is one of her original songs called 'Barishon Main' by Teeen. It is credited to her and her bandmates Imam Hamdani & Ahsan Ghulam Hyder. It's groovy, easy to listen and bluesy, how the many things in life should be. For someone who lives away from home, this song takes me straight to my bedroom.

Listen for yourself and tell me what you think.

She is also the face of Levi's campaign promoting new music (Check it out here). The song 'Dekha De Rang Apna' and the video are setting new heights for the music Industry in the continent. The cinematography of the video is strong and powerful and makes a bold statement of her arrival.

“My work with Omran, Jami and Levi’s® is very personal to me. It is a story. My story. I’m nervous and excited to share it with you all and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to do it with. It is raw and honest, there are sad moments and happy moments- I want other people like me to know that everyone goes through those things. Music is for the brave. Super psyched about the launch of my song and music video for Levi’s®! It’s the real story of my journey in music captured brilliantly by Jami and his team. There’s a lot of heart and soul and love that’s gone into this project and I’m very excited (and nervous) to share it with you all,” - Sara Haider commented at the launch event.

Special thanks to Mehul for this one!
