Zoe Viccaji and Irfan Ali Taj

Irfan Ali Taj, the young artist from Chitral who stepped into the mainstream music through “Ashiqi Angaar featuring Zoe Viccaji” has released his second single track called “Ishq Daryah”. The song features Moaaz Afridi, who happens to be Irfan’s band mate.

Unlike his previous video song, Ishq Darya is shot completely in Chitral’s scenic valleys. The direction was done by Junaid Mustafa.

Talking to GBee, Irfan Ali Taj said that he has more projects in the pipeline.

Alhumdulliah People know me now and once you have the recognition, there are lots of ways to entertain people. As a matter of fact, I have been more attached to mainstream songs and listen diverse music, so yes, I might surprise the viewers in the near future.

When asked if Ashiqi Angar’s success made him move forward, he added:

Music should never stop. I am not one of those who bring one song out and stop progressing. Ashiqi Angar gave me courage to compose Ishq Daryah which is out and Dunya Ju Baso which is will be released soon. The thing that pushes me further is my love for music and my hunger to progress.

Zoe Viccaji will be back in his next song!

Dunya Ju Baso is a project we did alongside alongside Ishq Daryah. The song features Zoe Viccaji once again and has been shot entirely in Chitral. For me, it’s an even bigger project than Ishq Daryah is and will surely amaze my fans.

I would like to thank my buddies, Junaid Mustafa who directed the video, Zubair Taqi who was Asst. AD, Rahim Ullah Danish, Moaaz Afridi, who contributed in the melody and instrumentation.

Ishq Darya Lyrics

 

زندگی آرزوان ای جہاں
خوشانی سوال بہچیتائے
Life is a world of desires
Happiness remains unrequited
ہردیو نسانڅوپیڅوپی
ای انوس دی سال غیریتائے
Days turned into years as I gathered slivers of my heart
اے ہردیو بتین
اےمہمَهجَبین

The innermost of my heart, O you!
O the one with moon like brow!
عشق دریاہ، تُو مہ کشتی، غیچھان روشتی مہ کیا غم
مہ لوٹ اللہ، سے مہ ستک، مہ شیرین ژان مہ کیا غم !
Love is a river, and you are my boat
The light of my eyes, why should I despair
God Almighty! all Seeing, my Sustainer
Mine is my sweetheart, why should I despair
تُو ملا توزندگی حسین
جو تُو نہیں تو کُچھ نہیں
Life’s beauty is in your company
If not you, there’s nothing to life
کوشِشوں کے آگے جیت ہے
مُشکلیں نہ ہوں تو کیا خُوشی !
Victory comes after striving
Joy is not joy if attained without difficulties
یہ آسمان و زمین
ہےتیرے دَم سے حسین
You are the reason
For the beauty of this sky and land

تُو میرا سُر، میرا ہر سُوز، میری ساز ہو تُم
میرا اوّل، میرا آخر، میرے ہمراز ہو تُم
You are my melody (sor),
my passion (soz),
My music (saz)
My beginning my end
You are the keeper of my secrets
آسمانہ مسو ساری سے روشت
زمینہ گلاب توغو غونہ کھیو !
ہسے ارمانان مہ بہشٹ
سے کی نو ہوئے زندگی کھیو !
Brighter than the moon in sky
Roses on earth cannot compare
That heaven of my desires
Without whom, life cannot dare

اے عشقو گمبوری
اے ہردیو قرار
O the flower of (my) love,
O the tranquility of (my) heart
ژِندو انجوم تہ دیوانہ، زومان پھورین تا نسوت
پلاور باو څیڅیقان غون، تھے اشپوناو تہ نسوت
Your lover in patched garment
Scales mountains to be near you
Full of innocence, like children
Comes running to be near you
ایک بیابان سا لگے تیرے بِن دُنیا مُجھ کو
کہ تیرے عشق میں فنا یہ تمننا مُجھ کو

The world is a barren desert without you
Annihilation in your love is my only desire

Introducing #GBCProspers - Stories from Gilgit, Baltistan and Chitral

Every day when we wake up, we struggle hard to make a name for ourselves, our families and our country. We see a handful of names in the limelight while hundreds and thousands of names remain in an obscurity no matter how big or small that person’s contribution to the society is.

At GBee, we believe that a society cannot prosper without the small yet meaningful contributions of its members.

This is why, we are announcing the launch of an on-going campaign which we are now officially calling #GBCProspers. This campaign aims to celebrate the contributions, small and big, by the common citizens that collectively reflect in the social, cultural, religious, musical and economic prosperity of the mountain communities.

How to access the stories?

The stories published under #GBCProspers campaign can be found on a dedicated topic section. Each story will also be published in its relevant district page on Facebook and GBee’s Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Alternatively, you can search for the hashtag #GBCProspers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get the latest as well as the stories published in the past.

How to submit a story?

Stories can be submitted at our email editor[at]gbee.pk with #GBCProspers in the subject, on our WhatsApp number +923555075849 or directly at your relevant district page on Facebook.
