Good evening Madam: South Asian Mixtape

IMG_9071 There is a man named Firoz Juma who has a truly amazing collection of South Asian music. Tonight’s post, is one he called Adaab Arz, Begum Sahiba (Greetings, Respected Madam!). I’ve changed the cover art but the selection of tracks is his alone. Mostly semi-classical and mostly from the 1940s and 1950s, the selection covers the icons of India and Pakistan including Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Noor Jehan, K.L. Saigal, Nazakhat and Salamat Ali Khan, Mai Bhagi, Jhutika Roy and on and on.

 

Hats off to Juma sahib, wherever he may reside!
