Amritsar, June 25 (ANI): Amritsars playing host to two Afghan singers who are shooting for an Afghani-Punjabi music fusion album.
Ariana Sayeed, a London-based Afghan female singer along with Germany-based Afghani singer Javed Sharief arrived here to shoot the first Indo-Afghan music album.
The album titled ‘Second Chance’ contains four songs, two of which are duets in Afghani and Punjabi sung by Javed Shareif and Holland-based Punjabi singer Balli Kalsi.
“This album is basically a fusion of Afghani and Punjabi songs. We are recording this kind of fusion for the first time in Amritsar,” said Harjinder Singh, a video director.
The Afghani duo chose India as the location for the shoot as it was not possible to do the album in Afghanistan.
“I went to Afghanistan twice. I did not shoot there because this type of work is not possible to do there. I have shot in Germany and Holland also. But here, work is very good,” said Javed.
With this fusion album, the duo aims to change the ‘conservative’ thinking of the common people in Afghanistan. (ANI)
