M. Ashraf ft. Ahmed Rushti ‘Dama Dam Mast Qalandar’ (The Sound Of Wonder)

Lahore in the 1970s and 1980s was the centre of the Pakistani film industry, Lollywood as it was known. The soundtracks to these films contained mad, joyous, funky, Pakistani pop music. Recently compiled by the Finders Keepers label this is Dama Dam Mast Qalander (‘This is the sound of wonder’ Ahmed Rushti sings), with the vocals flipping between languages, and the Moogs bubbling and synthing away. A funky start to Friday.
