Kashif Din: Ismaili Singer from Hunza Making Waves in Pakistan

Kashif Din, Ismaili singer/musician travelled all the way to Coke Studio (one of the most popular currently airing music shows in Pakistan) from Hunza with Bo Giyam, an original composition with Burushaski lyrics written by Nas Nafees, a poet who also hails from the same valley. Fusing the folk music of Hunza with contemporary colours, Bo Giyam is a song of heartbreak and disappointment.
