(Web Desk) - Exactly a year ago, on this day, Pakistan lost one of its dearest sons after a group of terrorists attacked his vehicle and gunned down the Qawwal outside his residence in Liaquatabad, Karachi, as he was on his way to attend a Ramazan transmission, ultimately leading to his unfortunate death. Following the untimely event, the entire Pakistani media went into a state of shock and utter disbelief.
Even a year on, the common people of Pakistan, the politicians, journalists and other prominent figures have been bemoaning the "national loss" of Amjad Sabri.
Sabri is credited with making the qawwali musical style accessible to Pakistan s youth. He was a sought-after performer for large-scale events in Pakistan, like the annual Lux Style Awards and cultural exchange programme, Shaan-e-Pakistan. He was due to appear on Coke Studio Season 9.
Here are five of his most memorable performances:
5) Dam Dam Mast Qalandar
4) Mera koi Nahee Hai
3) Milta Hai Kia Namaz Main
2) Tajdar e Haram
1) Bhar Do Jholi Meri
