Shot mostly in Karachi, the video song shows Irfan Ali Taj playing Rabab and the Chitrali version of Sitar. Video songs are not quite common in Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral and this song promises to change that perception. Irfan has sung the Khowar part of the song while Zoe Viccaji has beautifully backed with Punjabi/Urdu lyrics.

Ashiqi Angar Lyrics and English Translation:

Ishq hai khuda ki pehchan
(Love is the depiction of God)
Farishton ka hai yeh bayaan
(It is the discourse of the Angels)
Ishq se zameen asman
(Love holds the sky and the earth within)

Asheqi angar ki birai
( If love is a Fire )
Mashooq gulsambar ki birai
(If beloved is a spring-flower)
Haseen parchamdar ki birai
(With soft and beautiful leaflets)

Ishqa se pului behchurey
(A lover will rejoice buring in the fire of love )
Hamish tan burui behchurey
His soul will always keep melting with it.
Hardi beer ului behchurey
(His Heart will keep flying )

Jale Mora Man
(My heart burns)
More sajan
(O beloved!)
Rasta na Koi
(There is no way out)
Main hui birhan
(I am a shattered being)

Haye yeh majburi
(O this helplessness)
Kaisi hai duri
(Why is there a separation?)
Dastaan yeh kaisi
(Why this story end up like this ?)
Reh gayi adhuri
(Why we have become partitioned)

Ishq hai khuda ki pehchan
(Love is the depiction of God)
Farishton ka hai yeh bayaan
(It is the discourse of the Angels)
Ishq se zameen asman
(Love holds the sky and the earth within)

Jungle’a shotara asum
( I am wondering in Jungle and deserts )
Umeed aitbara asum
(Surviving in the hope and trust of you )
Nishi intizara asum
( I am waiting with a conviction)

Jale mora man
Mere sajan
Rasta na koi
Main hui birhan

Hoi khyo ta posheen
( The time I saw you )
hardiyo bateen
(Oo the beat of my heart)
Ma hush hoi boteen
( My senses have been tied )
Harush tu haseen
(That is how charismatically beautiful you are)

Ta choom hosik, bo zalim,
(Your witty smile is cruel inside)
Ta choom hosik, ma bo khosh,
( Oh your smile, the most loveable thing )
Ta roi marik, ma bo khosh ta choom hosik
(People die over it and I love are way you smile )
