Raeth – the new-kids-on-the-block

After Junoon, Strings and Jal its now the turn of Raeth,

Raeththe latest Paki band, to create musical sensation in India. Raeth – comprises of Wajhi Farouqui on vocals, Hassan Farabi on guitars and Mustafa Asad on bass, dont know who the fourth guy is!!

The song “Bhula do” which is already climbing the charts, has three versions, in addition to a normal rendition, a club mix version and an acoustic one.
I was really impressed by their soulful lyrics – amazing play of words. Just two listening and am already humming their songs.
Out of the remaining eight tracks of their self-titled album, my personal favorite being “Kitne Zaalim Hain”..it goes something like…
Kitne zaalim hain, jo yeh kehte hain..
Tod lo phool, phool chhodo mat
followed by
Baghbaan hum toh is khayal ke hain
Tehniyon ka lahoo nichodo mat
Chhod do phool, phool todo mat.

Though the band members insist that they are different from “Jal“, they at times do sound like them e.g their “Bhula Do” reminds you a lot of “Woh Lamhey” by Jal.

Speaking of Jal – a favorite band of recent times – Jal’s lyrics are aJal - the band. subtle manifestation of emotions expressed in an energetic and harmonious manner. Their debut album “Aadat” was a huge hit not only in Pakistan but India and South Asia too Their videos of “Woh Lamhey” and “Ik Din Aayega” have been shot amazingly. Download them here.
Music is truly the world’s universal language capable of bringing our hearts and souls together. So here’s hoping for some good music from these people no matter from which side of the border.
