The following are vidcaps of the rocker Maha, from her latest song Uljhan on MTV channel. Even though Pakistani music scenery is flush with ‘talent’ (and I use the word carelessly), we don’t have a gal rocker with sex appeal. Forget sex appeal, we don’t have a chic rocker, period. Some names that come to mind are Rabi Peerzada and Hadiqa Kiyani (but she has really let herself go lately). Don’t even mention Fariha Pervaiz and Humera Channa. They are neither rockers, nor sexy. Pretty ?. Yeah, in a homely sort of a way.
So it was quite a surprise to see this rad chick going nuts on stage, wearing skin tight leather pants and stroking the mic like a seasoned pro (and I use that word after careful deliberation). She’s got the long, dark, curly mane swishing about her. She’s even got the half-cut leather gloves on. She’s probably too young to remember that musicians already did that in the 80’s.
Nevertheless, this gal couldn’t have arrived on the Pakistani scene, any sooner. You will also note the black leather choker (it’s around her neck). Now in not-so polite company that choker could be taken as a symbol of something more than just an accessory. We will leave the juicy and sinister connotation for you yogis out there to dwell upon.
I hope Maha continues to kick ass on stage and grows, both as a musician and a rock icon. I hope her ass isn’t listening. It’s high time that Pakistani chicks went nuts and smashed things, on stage, not just at home. And Maha looks like just the girl for the job.
Here is the complete video of Maha’s Uljhan. Enjoy.
