Lately our Punjabi artists have started to follow the bandwagon of releasing albums and latest one on the list is youth sensation, Arjan Dhillon who recently brought his album titled, ‘Awara’.
Consisting of 13 tracks, the album has made us enjoy all the songs ruling our headphones and speakers but one of the songs which really made us grooving is ‘Danabaad’ for its composition of course but more over the lyrics which are simply incredible talking about the immortal love stories from the history of Punjab. Mirza Sahiba was one of the four tragic love stories in the history of Punjab. The other three were Heer-Ranjha, Sassi Punnu and Sohni Mahiwal. Also Read : Hey!
