Pakistani rock about the floods

This song has been making the rounds in Pakistan.  It’s by a rock band called LAAL, and the song is called “Doob Gaya Hain” (it/we have been drowned).  Incidentally, Laal has an explicitly political history that you can and should read about, singing songs by some of my favorite poets, like Faiz and Habib Jalib.  Spread the word if you like the song — definitely donate to one of the many organizations doing relief work.  I recommend the Labor Party of Pakistan’s efforts.
