Pakistan Has A New Star. And She Is An 8-year-old Girl
Nescafe Basement has started its 5th season with absolute bang. For a country that eats, sleeps and breathes music, Episode 1 of the show is like a buffet.
While several talented artists featured in the first episode, including Soch The Band, Ali Tariq, Hamza Tanveer among others, it was an 8-year-girl who totally stole the show and hearts of the entire nation.
Bol Hu – Soch The Band Feat. Hadia Hashmi
Syeda Hadia Hashmi featured in episode 1’s collaboration with Soch The Band. The Sufi song ‘Bol Hu’ was the winner of the night, thanks to little Hadia’s powerful voice and outrageously good vocals.
People are simply blown away by her vocal prowess and how she hits the right notes with absolute perfection.
