Video of the song “Pinjra” from the album “Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh” by Noori released

Pakistan’s one of the renowned and leading band, Noori, releases the video of the single “Pinjra” from the album “Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh”. Pinjra is the 2nd song that is released from the album. The song is about the shackles that bind us in this world and asks God to free us from the chains of our blinded unexamined beliefs. Pinjra focuses the exploration of the imprisonment of humans on this earth with their fears and their greed for self-proclaimed righteousness, Pinjra is more or less about the journey of letting go. The video of the song has been directed by Mandana Zaidi, and is set in a cage inside which the imprisoned band hides behind a mask of fame, success and stardom. They are struggling to liberate themselves from the disguise that has become their reality. The artists seek inspiration from Begum Gul Bakaoli who has left everything behind and has set on her journeys towards freedom.  Ali Noor from the band noore, speaking about the song, said “The song is about how one’s dogmas become his/her own Pinjras: Dogmas are not made by God, man makes dogmas and this way man uses God as an excuse to control other people… And they do so by making themselves believe that they have to sacrifice and be in fear all the time. That’s the theme of the song and the video is pretty self-explanatory, when you start becoming so dogmatic you almost become a clown”. The video release also marks the launch of the BGBS Experience where Noori will share with their fans the ethos of “Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh”. The different concept, depictions and ideas behind the album will be revealed in the form of visuals, words and most importantly through music.  Noori will be interacting with the fans who will become “Friends of Noori” and be part of the Noori family. The BGBS Experience is all about the concept behind the album and the journey begins will the release of Pinjra.   The band will also be performing in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad in March, Kicking off with the Pinjra Celebration Concert at the BNU Festival on 4th March.
