Familiar with Reshma? Well, you should be.
As some of you may already know, Reshma is a brilliant folk singer in Pakistan. Along with Pakistanis sprawled all over the world, she has managed to win the hearts of many Indians and has made her mark in Bollywood as well.
Although Reshma is extremely simple and does not even know how to read & write … she sings from the heart and has a gigantic fan base. Her most famous song is “Lambi Judai”, which was sung for Hero, a Bollywood movie along with many other songs, which can easily be found on YouTube as well.
According to Wikopedia, Reshma is also an advocate of good relationships between Pakistan & India. She was one of the first people to travel on the bus from Lahore to Amritsar and has always remained positive and has prayed for peace between the two countries.
It’s sad and slightly pathetic to see that much of today’s youth in Pakistan is not so familiar with such a legend and are so busy being so impressed and influenced by the West. However, music masters like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Vital Signs, Nazia & Zohaib, Abida Parveen, and Reshma are some of the many Pakistani icons that should never be forgotten as they have left a huge mark on our country.
On a recent awards function, they were kind enough to do a tribute to Reshma and Atif Aslam came especially to sing Lambi Judaai for her as well.
What a brilliant performance. Check it out.
