Khumariyaan welcome 2018 with new song 'Gulmast'

Patari Music kicked off the New Year in style and panache with the release of acclaimed band Khumariyaan’s latest song Gulmast, with a video shot completely on a phone.

Khumariyaan, an internationally celebrated band, created the song as a celebration of the winter seasons, and the tune marks the heralding of a new dawn.


Band member Sparlay Rawail shared, “The track is a homage to the Peshawar pop beat that is so well known among all Pashtuns. The band has used a dying instrument called the Pashtun Sehtaar in hopes of bringing its sound back into the conscious of our listeners.”


Sharing his experience, the director said, “I really enjoyed working with phones. It is remarkable to see how much freedom the cameras on them provide, and it really showcases how rapidly this technology is evolving.”

Khumariyaan is a group of four musicians from Peshawar, Pakistan working on the incremental evolution of Pashtu folk music, they create trance-like and ambient pieces, which do not rely on lyrics, but their fierce instrumentals as its driving force.

Patari is an audio platform for the web and mobile that hosts Pakistani content. It has the largest library of Pakistani music, audiobooks and podcasts.
