Zeb and Haniya – Bibi Sanam Jaanem [ Download Audio | Video ]

‘Bibi Sanam Janem’ is another one out of Zeb and Haniya’s quirky, off-beat repertoire. This season the duo brings yet another folk Dari love song, whose variants can be heard well off into Central Asia. While the song has been sung in the traditional Behravi raag, the syncopation has lent a groovy feel to it. Indeed, the house band is at its most experimental in this track in this episode, without compromising on the sweetness of the song.
The duo felt that they could reach out to a larger audience across Central Asia, since ‘Bibi Sanam Janem’ is popular – more importantly, since music allows such possibilities of connecting and relating.

When Zeb and Haniya initially thought of doing ‘Bibi Sanam Janem’, they had a Bossa Nova groove in mind and it was from there that the whole musical composition was built on. Contrasted with ‘Paimona’, their Dari number last season, there are some differences and similarities. For instance, both ‘Paimona’ and ‘Bibi Sanam’ have rubab openings but while Paimona had stuck to its original rhythm format, in ‘Bibi Sanam’ they have experimented with it, and jazzed it up with instrumentation.

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road
