Hi Kush,

My thought was to listen to one or more of the links you posted while working; a listening only mode.
Couldn't do it. The music is way too good and the artist's performance very engaging. His voice was
quite expressive and appealing. Felt comfortable with the music right away.

Glad you liked it Steven. At some point I will try to put a translation or synopsis of the songs (with help from the internet). At least the first and third song, the second one is in Punjabi and out of my comfort zone.

There are references to the story of Sassi and Punnun, a folktale from Sindh - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sassui_Punnhun
