Sufi folk band The Sketches win big at Pakistan’s Hum TV Awards 2014
The Sketches‘ critically acclaimed single “Main Sufi Hoon” wins ‘Best Music Video 2013’ at this year’s national Hum TV awards, which has just been televised, beating off a number of high profile nominees.
The video was released late April 2013 (a few months after the band self-released the track as a free download) and over a number of months grew into one of the most talked about videos of last year. The video was filmed in the band’s native Sindh and directed by Adnan Kandhar.
The sufi kalam put to music in the track are a mix of poets Sachal Sarmast and Baba Bulleh Shah. These words go further to promote the band’s (and enigmatic lead singer Saif Samejo) stated mission to promote peace & harmony through their music.
