Zeb and Haniya
In keeping with promoting culture whether its own or Pakistan’s, the embassy of Turkey, under the aegis of Ambassador of Turkey and Mrs Engin Soysal, arranged a concert by Pakistani artistes Zeb and Haniya (Zebunnisa Bangash and Haniya Aslam) accompanied by Zishan Mansoor (guitar) and Hassan Ameen Mohyeddin (percussion). Name sound familiar? He is the son of the well-known artiste of many talents, Zia Mohyeddin. The small auditorium of the embassy had a ‘house full’ attendance with avid fans and first time listeners bowled over by the duo’s easy style and audience interaction. The factthat they are Pakistani girls from what is generally believed to be a very conservative area was surprising for the expatriates in the audience and they were quite candid in admitting it!
