CD Reviews

Very good collection of Abida, though not her best of works
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A nice collection of songs--mostly spiritual Sufi--are collected on this CD. Virtually all the songs on this one are in Sriaki or Punjabi--whereas most of her best songs are in Sindhi. A good collection, nonetheless. -Abro"
Nice collection of a Pakistani superstar

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although she is one of Pakistan's greatest modern vocalists, Parveen has been almost completely overshadowed by the international stardom of the late sufi qawwal master, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Khan, of course, is one of the few Pakistani musicians whose records are widely available in the West, though this excellent best-of provides a nice glimpse into Parveen's own large catalog. If anything, she is much more stylistically diverse, offering romanitic as well as devotional music, and while not as technically dynamic vocalist, she is no less expressive. Highly recommended, especially if you were ever on the Fateh Ali Khan bandwagon, but wanted a little something more diverse."
