Islamabad, November 20: Pakistan’s Ambassador, Hussain Haroon, has given DVDs of the video song titled “Yahan”, performed by Amanat Ali Khan, to the members of United Nations General Assembly. The video was produced by Zarminae Ansari – a renowned architect, writer and activist of Pakistan, with the help of Aga Khan Cultural Service Pakistan and Serena Hotels.
Zarminae recently delivered conference presentations at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and New York University about the importance of marketing cultural heritage, to promote the cultural tourism in Pakistan and other parts of the world.
The Gilgit – Baltistan and Chitral region, like other parts of Pakistan, have enormous potential for cultural tourism, being home to some of the rarest and most ancient languages and traditions of the world.
Ms. Ansari has proudly described herself as “the biggest fan of Shigar and Khaplu in Beautiful Baltistan”, in the introductory para of her twitter profile.
The musical video, “Yahan”, that Zarminae produced, putting her soul and heart in it, has been a source of inspiration for millions of people within Pakistan and abroad, who have come to know more about the region through the superbly filmed piece of art.
