Arts and music, though a talent ignored and a career option very few would actually ‘recognise’, has found its ground in Pakistan. It is safe to say that Pakistan has a plethora of raw talent, which with a bit of correct guidance, platform and opportunity, can take the country’s music industry to new heights.
One such hidden gem was discovered by producer Nescafe Basement Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan aka Xulfi. The first episode of the Nescafé Basement Season has made the entire country obsessed with this 8 years old girl. Syeda Hadia Hashmi is already being dubbed as Pakistan’s future Abida Parvene due to her incredibly powerful vocals and talent that far exceeds her age.
Her first track, Bol Hu, had a mystical and Sufi vibe, and the entire song had undoubtedly reminded us of country’s remarkable asset and Sufi sensation Abida Parveen. Hadia stunned everyone with how well she handled the composition alongside Adnan Dhool. The soul searching, captivating and moving track is a masterpiece in itself but the way an eight years old, fifth grader, has performed it has left the entire country in awe.
Episode 1 Alert!@nescafebasement launches season 5 with a phenomenal talent lineup, coupled with fantastic music.
Listen to NESCAFÉ Basement Season 5 Ep. 1 on Patari.

nescafe basement is sooooooo better than coke studio because It actually gives chance to the singers who are talented and not on the basis of their creepy fanbase or looks

Nescafe basement deserve more attention, those singers and musicians deserve more recognition far more than coke studio. That's some real music, some real hard work, no parchi singers or anything. #nescafebasement5
