Another star is born on the Pakistani music scene. Isn't it great that Abida Parveen has helped groom the next generation. She sounds so much like her and is gifted with a great wholesome voice.

Wonderful post!!

Duniya bardi baavri, Pathar poojan jaaye
Ghar ki chakhee koi na poojey, Jiss ka peesa khaaye

Beautiful! I had the good fortune of listening to both Saman Marvi and Abida Parveen live at the same concert about 2 years back and Sanam does seem to sound a lot like Abida in terms of singing style and voice quality. Hope we get to hear a lot more from her in the coming years.
