(Web Desk) - Ever wondered how Pakistani music has evolved over the years. Well wonder no more because a Pakistani production The Chai Sutta Show has put a video tribute of all of our nation’s greatest hits on its Facebook page. The four minute video features all three of the show’s performers (Bassam, J.D, Babar) sitting in a car singing along as brief segments of each of the songs plays out.
To add to the fun, the performers go through numerous costume changes, each change coinciding with the type of song that is playing at the moment thus, giving the impression to the viewer that he or she is moving through music history. The video does not feature music from any one genre or one era instead it plays songs as diverse as Alamgir’s Dekha Na tha to Shahzad Roy’s Tera Kangna Jab Khankay (for a full description of the entire song list see the YouTube version of the video).
The tribute won much praise online. Video courtesy: Facebook page
