AllMusic Review by

This selection of songs drawn from the EMI Pakistan archives is the popular face rather than musicological of the tradition. The artist is represented to the nigh-exclusion of all others is the great playback singer Noor Jehan. The incidence of mehndi (henna) in its song titles alludes to the henna body decoration ceremonies associated with nuptial celebrations found throughout the subcontinent.
