New Yorker Momina Mustehsan takes South Asia by storm with ‘Afreen’

Momina’s mother, Huma, is a pediatrician and has a master’s in public health. Her dad, Kazim, was a brigadier general in the Pakistan Army.


Mustehsan has been playing the violin since she was in 2nd grade and the guitar since she was in the 4th grade. In another interview, she told the Pakistani paper The News that she first became interested in singing when she participated in the choir of her school talent show. “My teacher asked me if I had something to show and I said, I don’t know. And she said ‘I think you sing well’ and that’s when I sang for the first time. Then I realized that I had interest in music,” she said.

When asked about the future of her music career, she stated, “I don’t want to be a mainstream artist. I enjoy music. Enjoy making music. If I have the time, I love to sing a little bit.”
