This acclaimed singer-song writing duo paved the way for many female musicians active on the Pakistani music scene today. Original songs and newly interpreted tunes from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Central Asia carve a space for music that transcends national boundaries. Whether singing in Farsi, Turkish, Pashto or English, Zeb and Haniya bend ears to understanding.
“There is poetry in the air when Zeb & Haniya take the stage with earthy and sultry glory.” (Arab Times)
Zeb and Haniya’s version of the Dari folk love song, Bibi Sanam Janem for Coke Studio, has scored more than 1,850,000 YouTube hits. Chal Diye, an original composition by Haniya, is an ode to Islamabad, her hometown.
