Zeb & Haniya

Zeb & Haniya

Season 1: 2012

Cousins, lifelong friends and longtime musical collaborators, Zeb and Haniya bring a highly listenable, global sensibility to earthy originals and sounds from the Eastern edge of Central Asia, continuing an unsung tradition of strong female artists making an impact on Pakistani popular music. Based in Lahore, the duo's original songs and newly interpreted tunes from West and South Asia carve a space for music that transcends national boundaries. The duo counts as influences the classical traditions of the Indian subcontinent, Latin and West African grooves, American folk, and blues.

This program is a very positive approach. Perceptions only change... [when] people meet people. One person can shatter former perceptions.
