Punjab may be the largest province of Pakistan in terms of population. For this reason Punjabi language and culture dominate country’s cultural portrait. However, after the independence, Pakistan needed what you should unite the numerous ethnic and cultural groups into becoming one nation. Hence their state promoted the usage of Urdu to represent a shared national culture of Pakistan.
People of Punjab adapted Urdu with the integration of Urdu and Punjabi, Northern Indian migrant’s culture along with the culture of men and women of Punjab, a really beautiful new cultural landscape was born. A part of this cultural landscape is Pakistani Music.
Today Punjabi songs come in a number of flavors. You will find the songs download, but there are also Pakistani Punjabi movie songs, Pakistani Punjabi pop, Pakistani Punjabi Rock and Punjabi Sufi Songs.
Similar experiments were done in India; however Indian Punjabi songs are limited towards the Indian Punjabi speaking regions. Until or unless they are component of some major Hindi movie, they normally don’t have that much popularity on national level.
There are several basic characteristics of Punjabi songs that will make them not the same as Indian Punjabi music and also the Punjabi Rap and Rock through the UK. Pakistani Punjabi songs rely much more about the poetry than music. The poetic influence in the Urdu language can be viewed and observed on Pakistani Punjabi songs easily. The standard pattern of Urdu Poetry can be used to create the lyrics of songs, but the cultural aspects of Punjab will also be present and can not be ignored easily.
Another manifestation of Pakistani Punjabi songs would be that the voice of the singer is much more prominent than the noise of musical instruments. Madam Noor Jahan, just about the most prominent female inndianpop of South Asia, was the first one to introduce this trend where the melody of flute and also the vocal lead take over the songs. At a later time, the modern Pakistani Punjabi Songs stick to the traditional folk types of Punjabi music and dhool has regained the prominence once more in the Punjabi Rock and Punjabi Pop songs.
Since the culture of Punjab is shared between India, Pakistan and you can tell that UK’s Punjabi community also shares exactly the same cultural background. There is certainly so much these particular cultures share and borrow from each other, the tunes has no boundaries and it will not understand the rivalry between India and Pakistan. It can be shared and cherished across the border as well as the songs of Punjab are enjoyed across the globe from the Punjabi and non-Punjabi South Asians.
