bandook Premiere: Subhi’s ‘Naqaab’ is about unmasking your desires
By Bryan Durham - June 27, 2020
Indo-American singer-songwriter Subhi, who last put out Cage is continuing on her journey of introspection and self-discovery with Naqaab.
Drawn from her musical journey, it showcases her desire to break the ceiling and fighting her inhibitions in putting out her music.
About her latest track, Subhi says, “The word ‘Naqaab’ means – mask. We all have unfulfilled desires, but we are afraid to acknowledge them. We hide them deep down, somewhere inside us, and pretend to be happy. That’s what was happening to me. Being an Indian American I always had this conflict of where I belong. I was writing and creating in both Hindi & English, but because of my fears and preconceived notions, I never shared or released my English songs. I feel as women, sometimes we undermine our own desires and wishes. I have realized, I need to free myself, unmask myself, and let the world see the true me. I want to tell people that it’s alright to have desires, but it’s not okay to have regrets. Unmask those desires and set yourself free so you can live. I plan on releasing my English songs soon”
