Pakistani Sufi singer Sanam Marvi's show at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi has been postponed for some "uncalled reasons", organisers say. Marvi was supposed to perform as a part of Chaand Raat (last day of Ramzaan) on August 8.



But there seems to be no clear explanation for the postponement.

Anupam Kishore from Public Relations at IHC says, "As of now, there is no confirmation on why the concert is not been happening. It has been postponed and will most likely happen in a week. That's all I can say for now".

However TOI quotes Piyali Dasgupta saying," Sanam Marvi Pakistani singer Sanam Marvi concert which was to be held today at India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi has been postponed keeping in mind the sentiments of public and due to security concerns."

Sanam Marvi is a well known folk singer and she rose to fame with her performance at Coke Studio in Pakistan. She is among the finest performers in the Sufi, ghazal and folk genres.
