Sayida Ansari, The Guardian, ‘Totally full of spiritual energy’: Ustad Noor Bakhsh, the Pakistani musician going global in his 70s, 19 July 2023 “In clips of sunset jams near the Shadi Kaur creek, Bakhsh sits cross-legged with his electric benju – his right hand expertly plucking strings on the base, his left moving rapidly up and down the keys on the neck – playing everything from Balochi compositions to Bollywood favourites, flanked by two damburag players, each holding a long-necked lute and keeping the beat.” Brilliant. Facebook helped in boosting Bakhsh’s profile.
