International Sensation Imran Khan Live In Boston

Ranjani Saigal
04/10/2014

I have to be honest. I knew nothing of this singing sensation!. My daughter and son called me super excited seeing it on Lokvani. Unfortunately neither one was in town. They called and said “I am so jealous. I cannot believe you get see Imran Khan live. He is the creator of the amazing song Amplifier and so many other amazing songs.”

I went to the Morse Auditorium at Boston University and stood in line amongst some very eager fans. Shirin Bakre, Roshni Mirchandani and Henal Motiwala were the beautiful hosts.  The event opened with performances by BU Bhangara and Chaankar.  

Following that we had Imran Khan take the stage and almost the entire audience was on its feet dancing and singing along.  As Amplifier came on, the one song one song I had heard prior to the concert. As the concert moved forward one could see why he was a hit! Great music wonderful voice and of course that fabulous style. He went on to sing many of his hit numbers Hey Girl, Bewafa, Pata Chala, Bounce Billo, Gora Gora Rang, Satisfiya, Ni Nachleh  and Pata Chalega  and not for a moment did the young audience choose to sit and watch the show. 

As I googled Imran Khan I learned that he is a Pakistani-Dutch rapper, songwriter, record producer and singer. Khan was born and raised in The Hague to Pakistani Punjabi parents from Gujranwala in Punjab.

Releasing a single called "Ni Nachleh", the first song he wrote (which also featured fellow singer Spyder), Khan was signed to Prestige Records in late 2007.

Khan released his single 'Satisfya', written by himself, in 2013. Watching this singer it was clear that the new genre of music developed by South Asians blending their many influences is certainly a big hit and I suspect we will hear a lot more from this singer in the years to come!
