Atif Aslam is a super entertainer from Pakistan, promising to take the Asian Rock and Blues market by storm with his second super hit album "Meri Kahani" which he has composed and sung. Atif Aslam is one of the biggest selling Pakistani artistes in the world. With Lamhe & Aadat, followed by the world wide success of Doorie to his credit, he is the one who helped fuel the Pakistani rock explosion.

"Meri Kahani" can simply be stated to be the journey and life story of Atif Aslam. It is a soulful, poignant album, composed, arranged 7 rendered with a kind of depth, sensitivity, feelings, artistry and sense of design that puts it in a class by itself.

Atif Aslam is from Pakistan, the land of Punjabi folk music, the Heer and Sufiyana Kalam. The flavor of the soil of Multan, the mystique of the Aravallis and the icy wind of the desert of Thar all come together to breathe magic into the music of this region. And Atif takes the magical music to an international paradigm, weaving the simple tales of the heart and fetching stories of life into soft rock and blues. . A well trained voice, a deep identification with the simplicity of life in his homeland, a philosophical bent of mind, charming lyrics
and fashionable musical arrangement all together make "Meri Kahani" a must - hear for fans of the contemporary music of South Asia.

"Meri Kahani" is told as a story in the opening track - "Jhula Jhulaye Panghat". Atif Aslam paints a beautiful picture of his childhood and youth. The world was a happy one viewed from the comfortable lap of his grandmother. Life was a Cocoon of love and simplicity. The darkness of adulthood, the pain of the moment comes across poignantly in this nostalgic journey through childhood memories. Atif says, "Meri Kahani" it's all about my own childhood. The song is very close to my heart as I miss my nani (maternal grandmother) the most, apart from the old times with my friends and family.

"Rabba Sacheya" is a spiritual song explaining the realities of life, says Atif. It is a wondrous track pleading for forgiveness and calling for patience in living the journey of life... "Meinu shahe ne chae di rab soneya mein ta izat da tukar mangda han". I don't need power or kingship. I want to live with respect and dignity. "ALLAH" gives me the patience that will bring me close to you.
