After the roaring success of Peshawar Zalmi’s PSL 6 anthem, Kingdom, the franchise has released its regional anthem. According to Zalmi, they have always released two anthems, one for the whole country and one for the fans who enjoy the anthem in the Pashto language.
The new regional anthem is sung by famous Pashto singer, Gul Panra and features the famous Pashto band Khumaariyan. The anthem is called ‘Shamla’ which literally translates to ‘the crown of the Peshawari turban’. The anthem is a tribute to the Pashto dominant community in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
