known as North West Frontier Province) synonymous with Al-Qaeda and Taliban where music-making is an outrageous affair is where Zebunissa Bangash hails from where she would regularly visit her extended family This is where she heard the love song Laili jaan dileh ma kardi wairan by Afghani popstar Ahmad Zahir Known as the Elvis of Afghanistan Zahir’s simple song in 1977 was popular among Pashtuns and non-Persians in Balochistan Bangash grew up listening to it from her grandmother her parents and at family gatherings “It says ‘Laila you’ve made my heart desolate’ Everyone sang this around me It was a happy feeling” says 35-year-old Bangash in a conversation from Brooklyn where she’s making music and performing with her band Sandaara More than three decades later in 2013 Zahir’s song was repacked with a Cuban guy drumming up a storm Performed by Bangash and her cousin Hania Aslam of the duo Zeb and Hania in Coke Studio Season 3 it had Rohail Hayat at the helm The two had by then become Pakistan’s first all-woman band Four years later the song has a Hindi version in Alankrita Shrivastava’s much-talked about film Lipstick Under My Burkha Lyricist Anvita Dutt has turned the song into Leli jaan bina puchhe hai while Shrivastava has placed it in time-worn alleys and enclosures of Bhopal As for Bangash the composer and singer of the piece she has clarinet player Michael Winograd deliver a Chaplenesque prelude which when combined with rabab player Sadiq Sameer’s strumming Patrick Farrel’s accordion and Ankur Mukherjee’s guitars and double bass has resulted in a groovy piece finding airtime and attention on social media “Since it was a story set in Bhopal and I come with some Pashtun heritage I thought it would be nice to have Afghani elements in the fabric of the film’s music Alankrita wanted to bring the old and new worlds together and see that tension in the story which is why you hear a diversity of sounds It has this whimsical quality to it with the modern flavour in place” says Bangash who has composed the film’s soundtrack comprising three pieces While Leli jaan remains the most popular Ishqiya is a Nazia Hassan style disco piece sung by Neeti Mohan and Jigi jigi an age-old piece by Haji Saifuddin has been turned into a sensual folk song in Malini Awasthi’s voice lending “naughtiness gravitas and old school command” to the film It was two years ago that Shrivastava decided to get Bangash to compose for her film “I had heard Bibi sanam from Coke Studio and knew that’s the sensibility I was looking for” says Shrivastava who met Bangash in a Bandra cafe three days before she was to leave for home and handed her the script Shrivastava had a clear blueprint Bangash was inspired by the script right away “Alankrita had done her homework For every song and every situation she had a very clear idea of how she wanted things to sound” says Bangash who made sure that live musicians were used in the studio Bangash grew up in Lahore After her training under Pakistan’s Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan she experimented with a variety of sounds while studying in Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts With her cousin Aslam not far away at Smiths an evening of song and talk resulted in Chup in 2007 a debut that had Pakistan sit up and notice their work The duo’s popularity grew across the border in India as Coke Studio found an overwhelming reception Bangash performed at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in India (2014) after the duo performed at the SAARC Bands Festival (2011) The live performance at Delhi’s Purana Qila didn’t find many takers as the popular songs went off key but whatever the girls recorded became a hit For now though Bangash and Aslam work separately Aslam is in Canada and Bangash in Brooklyn and Lahore With the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association banning the entry of artists in India Bangash could not come to India for the release She says it’s a risk and an opportunity cost “Bringing someone for you (in India) is a risk Coming for us (from Pakistan) is a risk We work together because the art speaks to us not just because we are Pakistani or Indian And in that process with artistic integrity in the background you don’t even realise you are building bridges or may be being provocative That’s because of your commitment to the art Art itself is provocative” says Bangash “If you can keep yourself true to your art within that moment then truth transcends And it will speak to people regardless of where they are from” Bangash is currently working on other Indian projects For all the latest

late tonight Delhi-based Gill 35 was the quickest of the lot as he put in six laps around the 16 Kms dirt track clocking a best of one minute 39 seconds as against 21-year old Veiby’s 01:396 The pair was well ahead of the pack that included WRC regular Jari Ketomaa from Finland and Swedish ace Robert Blomberg “Since this is my first drive in the Skoda Fabia R5 in nearly three months I was keen to put in as much seat time as possible and am happy with how everything went today” said Gill during the pre-event FIA press conference today “However the Malaysian Rally is the toughest of the championship with changing conditions and high humidity but I am well prepared for it” Veiby who is driving a brand new R5 which came here straight from the factory said his goal was to maintain his lead in the championship referring to his two-point advantage over Gill who had won the first round in New Zealand while the Norwegian took the next in Australia “My target here is to stay ahead in

American Samoa: US Vice President Mike Pence has thanked US service members based in America Samoa citing "challenging times" for the military in the Asia-Pacific US Vice President Mike Pence Reuters Completing a visit to the region and en route back to the United States Pence addressed some 200 soldiers during a refuelling stop in Pago Pago He told the troops the Trump administration was seeking a large increase in military funding During his stop Pence also dedicated a sign that will greet visitors at a veterans clinic He met with American Samoan officials and troops on his way to Hawaii at the end of his tour that included a visit to the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea The trip offered evidence that Pence has become one of President Donald Trump’s chief emissaries on the world stage patching up relations reassuring allies still wondering what to expect from Trump and diving into international crises like North Korea Meanwhile it was revealed that the vice president was to shorten his visit to Hawaii ahead of a busy week for the administration in Washington Pence’s office said he would depart Hawaii on Monday afternoon after meeting with US Pacific Command leaders and troops stationed in Honolulu Plans for a Tuesday visit to the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbour have been postponed Pence’s office said Pence’s trip to Asia was planned weeks ago But it dropped him in South Korea just in time to deliver North Korea a stern warning from the US: that "all options are on the table" when it comes to curbing the North’s nuclear ambitions and that the Trump administration will seek support from its allies to pressure Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs His foray into the DMZ and his meetings with South Korean and Japanese leaders allowed Pence to shape a key American foreign policy issue presenting a new challenge for a politician whose prior foreign policy experience was limited to trips to the Middle East as a congressman and trade missions to Japan China Israel and Europe as Indiana’s governor Pence’s early foreign travel schedule contrasts sharply with a mostly homebound Trump who is not scheduled to travel overseas until late May for NATO meetings in Belgium and a gathering of the Group of Seven major industrial nations in Italy Pence partly covered that ground when he visited Germany and Belgium in February Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama had visited nine countries by late April 2009 his first three months in office checking in with allies such as Canada Britain and Germany The last first-term president to wait until May to take his first foreign trip was Jimmy Carter in 1977 Enter Pence whose still-evolving diplomatic playbook includes several components all steeped in humility personal ties and his religious faith In some ways Pence is the advance team: His earlier trip to Europe and his Asia trip that ends Tuesday are partly laying the foundation for journeys being planned for Trump In other ways Pence is the face of reassurance offering in-person outreach to world leaders Trump has clashed with or who have doubted Trump’s commitment to them at the start of his presidency In meetings with his counterparts Pence frequently passed along "greetings" from Trump and told his hosts how much America valued their alliance language that’s commonplace in diplomacy but understated compared to the more free-wheeling Trump On Thursday for example Pence told Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo how "proud" he and Trump were to partner with him and spoke of their hopes of working together Leicester City’s Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Claudio Ranieri and Wes Morgan stand with the trophy on stage Victoria Park after the open-bus parade AFP / ADRIAN DENNISHuddersfield: Mauricio Pochettino admitted he is running out of ways to describe Harry Kane after the in-form Tottenham striker inspired a ruthless 4-0 rout of Huddersfield Kane scored a wonderful brace at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday as Pochettino’s side kept the pressure on the Premier League pace setters The England international was the catalyst for Tottenham’s victory and he remains the most lethal striker in European football at the moment with his double making it 13 goals in his last eight matches Harry Kane celebrates after scoring his second goal against Huddersfield Town AFP Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko also scored for Tottenham but there was no denying Kane was again the man of the moment and even the Huddersfield’s fans applauded him off the pitch when he was substituted towards the end "It so difficult to talk every three days about Harry Kane and find different words to describe him" Pochettino said "He is fantastic and for me he is so great in front of goal but when we don’t have the ball he also runs and fights and works hard for the team "That mentality is fantastic it makes him one of the best strikers in the world and it’s a very good example for everyone "He is so humble and that is why we are so happy because he helps the team" Kane has now scored 84 times in the Premier League the same number as former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo The difference though is that Kane has done it in just over three seasons when it took Ronaldo six but Pochettino wasn’t quite ready to label his forward as the equal of the Real Madrid great ‘Fantastic’ "I don’t want to compare because afterwards you take the headline out of context Ronaldo is amazing he is on a different level like (Lionel) Messi" he said "Harry is still so young but he is showing that he is fantastic but the opportunity to improve is massive for him "I try to push him to get better and better and better I think he can still get better Every player at 23 or 24 can always adapt and improve" Kane opened the scoring after nine minutes as Huddersfield’s Chris Lowe was caught napping at the back allowing the England striker to race through on goal before finishing calmly past Jonas Lossl Davies doubled the lead after 16 minutes easily beating Lossl after some wonderful Spurs build-up play before Kane grabbed a brilliant third for Spurs after just 23 minutes Kane with his back to goal and two defenders nearby shrugged off their attention swivelled and hit a magnificent curling effort from 25 yards Spurs took Christen Eriksen off towards the end and his replacement Sissoko bundled home Spurs’ fourth in stoppage time Huddersfield boss David Wagner cut a frustrated figure in the post-match press conference and blamed his side for gifting Spurs too many opportunities "We’ve seen today this was a different class of opponent in the Premier League" Wagner said "If you want to get anything out of the game you have to have 100 percent concentration especially in defence "If you give them a chance they will use it if you give them a present they will certainly use it" In one of the most significant decisions in recent times
