New music video for up and coming Afghani artist SHAFIQ KHAN.
This video was shot on an overcast Frrreezing day last December, don't believe the thumbnail image! ;)
The production timescale on this video was very tight; all shots had to be finished in the space of 5 hours and the tide was against us! Not to mention the one week edit!
The whole video was shot with natural light, no time to be fiddling with things like that!
All the shots apart from the night ones, were filmed along the beautiful coastline of North Wales. Unfortunately we ran out of daylight when we got to location 2. This was a real shame, as there was an amazing shipwreck that would have provided the backdrop for some stunning composition.
Thanks to Shafiq Khan and Shafina Patel (Model) for being such a laugh to work with.
Also a big Thank You to Shaf Noor from Memoirz Photography for his invaluable support.

Lyrics plus English Translation.
Ashiqi Chashmaai tu am aan chashmaani sia e tu am gharmi e labhaa e tu am man (x2)
I am in love with your raven dark eyes and the warmth of your lips.
Tura har dam binam chashmat por gham binam belarzad qalbi man gar tu ra kam binam. (Bemiram ay yaaram ghar tura por gham binam x2)
Seeing your eyes filled with sorrow and seeing you less often/little makes my heart tremble. Seeing you sad will make me die.
Ashiqi chashmaai..........repeat as above.
Jaanam tuhi nooram emat o ghorooram ishqi por sorooram tu e doniya e man (x2)
Ay yaar dilam darad sawdaa e tu, Sawdaa o fekri fardaa e tu
"My love" you are my vision, my courage, my pride, my beautiful love and you are my world. "My love" my heart longs for you. It longs for your thoughts and memories.
Afsaana shawam az hijri tu dewaana shawam dar fekri tu
Ashiqi chashmaai tu..........repeat of all of first verse
Your separation will drive me mad, your thoughts will drive me crazy (crazy in love)
Biya janam dor maraw ay dokhti maghroor maraw dilam ra paara makon (x2)
Come my love don't go away from me, oh arrogant girl don't go and break my heart.
Chashmi siya e tura aalam nadaara, abroy kamaani tura aalam nadaara
Your raven dark eyes are unique and the camber of your eyebrows are unique.
Bebin ou beraham makon ba ma sitam maraw ze ma door ay boti maghroor
Look oh merciless girl, don't be so cruel with me don't go away from me
Ashiqi chashmaani tu.....repeated
Man bemiram yaaram ghar kam binam tura khawam ke har lahza hardam binam tura
bemiram ay yaaram gar tura por gham binam.(x2)
Afsaana shawam az hijri tu dewana shawam dar fekri tu...
I will die "my love" if i see you less often/little. I need you with me every moment and all the time.
