Komal Rizvi Scores Record Deal with HMV
Pakistani singing sensation, Komal Rizvi, rose to fame at a very early age. It is, therefore, not surprisingly at all that she is now known as one of Pakistan’s best Sufi singers. Her youthful, unique and glamorous approach to Sufi music sets her apart from the other giants in the industry and she is certainly not afraid to experiment with her art.
Humble and self-effacing, this powerhouse can belt out notes twice her age, but stresses that she is still evolving. For a young woman who brought Sufi Pop/Rock to the popular Pakistani music scene, she is possibly one of the most electrifying live performers in the country today. Her presence, showmanship, obvious mastery and edgy style can bring an audience to its feet in mere minutes. A testament to her versatility is her appearance on immensely popular Coke Studio Season 4, where her songs still hold No.2 and No.3 positions with their digital audience.
Despite, her early success she has shown no signs of slowing down. In fact, she has been busy travelling back and forth from India to record and launch her new album under the prestigious record label Saregama HMV. As anyone who is aware of the South Asian music scene would know, scoring a record deal with famed HMV is indeed a huge honour. As a Pakistani artist it is further proof of her talent and value that such a big record label would produce her album.
The album will have 3 new songs along with a collection of her previous singles. Building hype for the new albums, Komal is set to release a music video for her single ‘Jhoolay Laal’ in the coming week. Rumour has it that the new single is a mix of Komal’s trademark Sufi-pop along with a video that captivates imaginations. With the single’s video soon to take over television screen, the vocal powerhouse has is all set to make her voice reign Pakistan’s music industry once again.
