Chaa Rahi Kaali Ghata, originally popularized by the Late Begum Akthar, Sahir Ali Bagga steps into his own as a debut music director with this rendition of the classic thumri. With Hina Nasrullah’s bold, powerful range matched with Amanat Ali’s warm, honeyed timbre, the song is a fitting conversation of forlorn love. Pleading with the ‘papeeha’ to find some solace and respite, the song is bespeckled with onomatopoeia that burns with sorrow. This bittersweet song, with pockets of melancholic sitar and lilting flute, relays the anguish and grief that often follows love.
