Completely quite, absolutely captivating and extremely|very and entirely captivating harmonic; the increasing songstress Momina Mustehsan is making waves given that her launching on Coke Studio 9.

The lady with the nightingale voice has actually produced an outcry with her tune “Afreen Afreen” including the master Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Shockingly, with her couple of lines in the renowned tune, she has actually taken all the spotlight from the legend in their emotional performance. I never ever officially discovered the best ways to play or sing, so I do not have a specific field. I do not limit myself with categories, I enjoy them all.
