Saregama releases Sain Zahoor’s first Sufi Punjabi Track ‘Thumba’ featuring Debi Makhsoospuri.
Sain Zahoor also known as Saieen Zahoor is a leading Sufi musician from Pakistan. He has spent most of his life singing in Sufi shrines, and didn’t produce a record until 2006, when he was nominated for the BBC World Music awards based on word of mouth. He emerged as the “best BBC voice of the year 2006”.
He is known for adopting the folk instrument Ektara (ek= one, tar = string), in its three-stringed version called Tumbi, as his main instrument. He is also known for his earthy voice texture.
