EXCLUSIVE: Our latest album is not at all different from our previous albums– Noori

Ali Hamza and Ali Noor have always held sway over the hearts of millions of Pakistanis. Ever since they debuted with Suno Ke Mein Hun Jawan way back in October 2003, Noori’s music has always been a hit with the local populace. With a string of hits such as Manwa Re, Suno Ke Mein Hun Jawan and Tum Hans Diyay, Noori was able to establish himself as a singing powerhouse.

Hence it was no surprise when The Ocean Mall near Karachi’s Two Swords area was thronged everywhere by eager fans who couldn’t get enough of the band. Along with their team of nearly 10 people, Ali Hamza and Ali Noor were the spectacle of the evening, for the hundreds of fans lined up and waiting to interact with the band. With his new song from the album blaring off the loudspeakers, it was a joyous occasion for fans who had had enough of Noori’s 10 year hiatus and were pleased to witness them release new music again.




A dedicated female fan had also showed up with a fan art of Ali Noor. Which the band tweeted from their official Twitter account:-

On the ground floor, in front of a large backdrop of their album cover, Ali Noor and Ali Hamza were busy chatting with fans and media personnel. The cue was long enough, hence we asked Noori’s official team present nearby to get us a one-on-one brief interview with Ali Noor. A female team member of his escorted us to the front where Noori was busy obliging a group of ecstatic female fans, with selfies.




After his team member had informed him about some journalists wanting to ask him some questions, he shook our hand and said,”Just five minutes guys and I’ll be all yours.”

A plethora of fans and dozens of selfies were to blame for the fact that it was much later than 5 minutes when Ali Noor was free to talk to us. The first questioned I asked him was how was Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh different from all of his other albums?

“It’s not,” said Noori with a slight shrug. “It really isn’t. We’ve followed the same formula which stuck to our previous albums and have followed it up with BGBS.”

Upon being asked as to what were his inspirations to come up with such beautiful music, Ali Noor said “All Pakistani musicians, Pakistani bands, everything Pakistani and most of all, Pakistani people.”


When asked to comment about the future of Pakistani music, Noori did not look disappointed.

“It’s very bright, lots of talented people doing their thing. Very bright.”

About the band’s future endeavours, he stated:-

“Lots of interactions and one-on-one meetups with fans.”

And with that, Ali Noor returned to his impatient fans, signing more CD’s and clicking more selfies. Judging from the response, Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh has indeed struck a chord with the fans!
