Award-winning artist Meesha Shafi is all set to perform live at the Jubilee Stage of Expo 2020 Dubai on the 28th of November 2021.

Shafi is a globally recognised Pakistani-Canadian artist known for her modelling, acting and music over the course of an illustrious career that has spanned 21 years so far.

Her avant-garde music in particular has gained her recognition from fans and critics across the world. She made her film debut with a supporting role in the 2013 Mira Nair's film “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”.

She achieved further critical success for her role of Laxmi, an Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing's operative, in Bilal Lashari's action thriller film “Waar”, which ranks among the highest-grossing Pakistani films of all time in Pakistan.

Just last year, her nostalgic yet fresh renditions of Nazia Hassan’s “Boom Boom” and Amir Khusro’s poem “Sakal Ban” had fans of all ages humming to the classics again.

More recently, her single “Hot Mango Chutney Sauce” — released in September  2021 — was a critical and commercial success in Pakistan, and also featured on BBC Radio Live Asian Network’s Song of the Week.

Shafi’s performance at the Expo 2020 Dubai would be her first major live act in nearly a year and a half. Fans from across the world once again have the chance to come together to enjoy Shafi’s powerful vocal performance and charismatic presence on stage.
