Music Video: Doob Gaya Hain (Laal)

Laal, Pakistan’s most well-known socially and politically conscious band today, has a new single and music video out to highlight the plight of the country’s millions of flood victims. An English translation is below.

If you have not yet contributed to Pakistan flood relief aid, two excellent organizations are Mercy Corps (via Relief4Pakistan) [link] and Islamic Relief [link].

———-

My house with its earthen courtyard, my sanctuary

My lifeline of support, my home village

The shadows of my every memory, and every moment, are here.

My blood, my sweat, my death and life are all here.

(But now) Everything has drowned, Everything has drowned

If you were in my stead?

You’d have no option but to voice your pain.

If you were in my stead?

You’d have no option but to spread your hands to beg.

Everything has drowned, Everything has drowned
