LAHORE: Legendary folk singer Reshma,  who was suffering from throat cancer for a long time, passed away in Lahore on Sunday, Express News reported.
Reshma was one of the most popular folk singers of Pakistan, appearing on television in the 1960s and recording songs for both the Pakistani as well as the Indian film industry.
Born in Bikaner in India’s Rajasthan state to a Banjara family around 1947, her tribe had migrated to Karachi shortly after partition.
When she was just 12, a television and radio producer spotted her singing at Shahbaz Qalander’s shrine. The producer arranged for her to record “Laal Meri” on Pakistan radio. She became an instant hit.
Some of her songs include Dama Dam Mast Kalandar, Hai O Rabba nahion lagda dil mera, Sun charkhe di mithi mithi cook mahiya meinu yaad aunda, Wey main chori chori, Ankhiyan no rehen de ankhyan de kol kol and Lambi Judai.
According to initial details, her funeral prayers will be held today.
Many – saddened by her death – tweeted and paid tribute to the musical genius.
