Some may perceive Ali Gul Pir as a ‘Sindhi maaroo’, while some as a wannabe ‘burger’, but still others see him as who he really is – a hip-hop artist who isn’t afraid of breaking conventions with comic relief and clever criticism, both social and political.
After hits like Saeen, VIP, Taroo Maroo and Youtube censorship, Kholo BC, his latest track is about Lassi.
Sab Choro Lassi Phoro, which was released on chand raat, has gone viral on social media, garnering positive feedback from public. Inspired from the theme song of 90’s American television sitcom, Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
The title reminds us of the familiar phrase, ‘sub choro bum phoro’ is used in a positive way .
The song, which has the perfect chilling-with-family-and-friends vibe, stands for embracing the good in Pakistan. Lassi is not just a healthy and hygienic refresher, it’s a reminder of a great part of our culture that we forget to celebrate in the shadows of all the crises plaguing the country.
