Before wrapping up, here is a song from past in the voice of Humera Abid Ali from drama Dasht shot in the rugged terrain of Gawaddar, Balochistan. It was the first ever drama shot in the remote area of Gawaddar in 1993, when it was a small fishermen town without basic infrastructure. Till this day it is the most successful drama made in the background of Balochistan, a province otherwise neglected by our media. Dasht is indeed an all time classic drama of Pakistan which introduced Attiqa Odho. It was also the first successful drama of Nauman Ejaz in lead role.
Here is a duet in the voice of Humera Abid Ali, Rabab Kehta Hai from drama Dasht shot on Attiqa Odho and Nauman Ejaz.
Vocals: Humera Abid Ali, Ameer Ali
Music: Wajid Ali Nashad
Artists: Nauman Ejaz (as Balach) and Attiqa Odho (as Shah Taaj)
Here is a clipping of OST of drama Doosra Aasman in the voice of Humera Abid Ali. It was the first drama shot in UAE, focusing on Pakistani expatriates there working in various fields. So the tune of OST has a traditional Arabic touch.
The ever green punjabi song Menu Dharti Qali Kara De in the voice of Humera Chauhdary in 1973. The song achieved the folk status and is sung at festivals, weddings and other joyous occasions in Punjab. The lyrics were provided by legendary Punjabi poet Ustaad Daaman, a rare occasion as he always avoided writing lyrics for filmi songs. The song has been remixed by many artists afterwards like Tahira Syed, Shahida Mini but the original one was in the voice of Humera Chaudhry who in 1973 was a young voice starting her career as a singer and actor.
