ALI SETHI ISHQ IS ALL KINDS OF WOW!

ALI SETHI ISHQ IS ALL KINDS OF WOW!

After the dark ‘Dil Lagaayein’ and serene ‘Chandni Raat’, Pakistani singing sensation Ali Sethi has released the gorgeous, heart-rending ballad ‘Ishq’.

Inspired by a couplet from Urdu poet Shakeel Badayuni, Sethi’s ‘Ishq’ is a journey of the heart: the dazzling video, directed by Umar Riaz, shows Ali entering a dreamy futuristic realm populated by enchanting figures (professional mimes from the Lahore-based Sway Dance Project) who beckon to him and lead him into ever-more sensuous places. 

“This song is very close to my heart,” Sethi says. “It’s about a rebirth — a miracle awakening after a spell of darkness. I’ve been through that experience myself, and believe that love liberates you when you least expect it to.”

Sethi wrote the lyrics with Lahore-based poet Shakeel Sohail and composed the tune himself. The music has been arranged by Sethi’s recent collaborator, the multi-Grammy-winning record-producer Noah Georgeson.
