The Nooran Sisters perform on Friday night.

Popular Indian sufi singers Nooran sisters cast their charm on the Dhaka audience on Friday night, the second day of Dhaka International Folk Fest-2017, at Bangladesh Army Stadium.
The evening also featured performances by Baula band from Bangladesh, Kutumba from Nepal, Mekaal Hasan Band from Pakistan, Shahjahan Munshi from Bangladesh and others.
This was not the first performance by Nooran sisters in Dhaka; the duo rocked the second edition of the festival in 2016. Still the sisters from Punjab-- Jyoti Nooran and Sultana Nooran, daughters of Ustad Gulshan Mir, a music maestro -- appeared as ever refreshing to the audience.
The sisters commenced their performance with a Quawali Hari Zaiyume and kept on singing sufi songs Ishke Allah allahi Allahu, Ali Ali, Allah Mere Touba, a song from Bollywood film Pataka Guddi, and others.
The sisters presented solo and duet songs in perfect harmony and coordination. The duo, accompanied by an orchestra comprising western, classical and folk musical instruments, cast a charm on the audience and the 60 thousand people present at the stadium danced and momentarily forgot all the hurdles of life on the occasion.
The festival, organised by Sun Communications, ended on Saturday.
