Dunya Ju Baso, the latest single music video by Irfan Ali Taj and Zoe Viccaji, continues to get viewers appreciations after a week of its release. Irfan Ali Taj, a contemporary folk artist from Chitral, had formally introduced Khowar music to the mainstream music industry through his first duet with Zoe Viccaji called Ashiqi Angar.

Irfan Ali Taj had announced the release of Dunya Ju Baso during an interview with GBee at the time when he released his single music video called Ishq Daryah.

The duo of Irfan with Zoe Viccaji is turning out to be a huge success. Zoe herself is a celebrated Pakistani pop singer and is a known musical figure. She has also appeared as a playback singer in Coke Studio.

What’s different from her first duet with Irfan Ali Taj is that this time, she sings Khowar lyrics. We asked a couple of Khowar speakers and turns out, she has actually killed it.

Just like any former music videos by Irfan Ali Taj, spectacular scenic views from Chitral along with Chitrali Sitar and Rabab music will simply leave you stunned. However, unlike Ashiqi Angar, Dunya Jo Baso is a complete Khowar track.

At the time of publishing this post, the vide has been watched by more than sixty thousand people on Facebook and more than twelve thousand times on Youtube. The song has also been posted on platforms like SoundCloud, Patari and Taazi.

The song has been written by Irfan Ali Taj himself the video has been produced by Mubashir Admani and directed by Junaid Mustafa. Moaaz Afridi has added beautiful rhythm guitars to the song.

      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?
