Newcomer Kashif Din has traveled all the way to Coke Studio from Hunza with Bo Giyam, an original composition with Burushaski lyrics written by Nas Nafees, a poet who also hails from the same valley. Fusing the folk music of Hunza with contemporary colors, Bo Giyam is a song of heartbreak and disappointment. Its lyrics express the speaker’s complaint, wrapping his grief in images of nature: seeds that they have sowed, only to watch them ripen in someone else’s garden, fruits that have fallen in another’s home, the desolation of mountains. Joining Kashif on stage is Coke Studio family member and backing vocalist Nimra Rafiq, who adds Urdu lyrics to the composition, echoing the yearning that is being expressed in the song’s Burushaski lyrics. Fusing the traditional with the contemporary, Burushaski with Urdu, Bo Giyam creates a space that invites listener to feel the gentle longing of its poet’s sorrow.

“When the world came into existence, so did music. There is music in everything. There is a scale in every voice. Everything moves to a timing. Our whole lives move to a beat and even the heart beats to a specific time. As far as I’m concerned, the entire world is music.” said Kashif Din.

“It feels nice to have reached this stage and to look back and think of the struggles I had faced as a musician. It doesn’t feel bad; it feels like it was worth it.” said Nimra Rafiq.
