The music industry of Pakistan has been fortunate to be blessed with some of the most talented singers. Whether we talk about classical, semi-classical, pop or rock singing, Pakistan has produced countless gems who have taken Pakistan's name to new heights all over the world. Tina Sani is also one of those singers who have always been a source of pride for Pakistan not only at home but abroad as well.
Born in Dhaka, which was a part of East Pakistan at the time, Tina Sani got her early education from Kabul and then moved to Karachi where not only did she get her diploma in design but also got training in music. Her classical music training was conducted by Ustad Nizamuddin Khan and Ustad Amrohvi. Her entrance into the professional world of singing happened in the year 1980 after Pakistan Television producer for music programs Ishrat Ansari introduced her in a music program. The program was meant for youth and was hosted by renowned singer Alamgir.
With her characteristic husky voice, Tina soon became immensely popular among ghazal lovers as she sang the works of the greats in Urdu poetry such as Mir Taqi Mir, Zauq, Ghalib and Faiz Ahmed Faiz. She has mostly worked with renowned composer Arshad Mehmood and has sung songs such as 'Bol', 'Bahar Aayi' and 'Akhan Cham Cham Wasiyan'. She has proven her vocal skills in classical, semi-classical and ghazals simultaneously.
In recent times, Tina has made an appearance in the popular music show on television by the name of 'Coke Studio' in which she sang a fusion duet with Arieb Azhar called 'Mori Araj Suno'. The song received a lot of appreciation from the audiences.
For her remarkable singing skills and unmatched vocal talents, Tina was awarded the President's Pride of Performance award.
