Heard that song a few months ago, played it non-stop, and still am in love with it
Here's another song by Irfan Khan. It was his first hit single and launched his career. As the name suggests, it's an ode to the city of Peshawar.
Pekhawar kho Pekhawar de kana - Irfan Khan
And in this next video, an American student of Pashto sings the same song!

“It was a friend, Irfan Khan, who advised me to remix the older version of Bibi Sheerinay,” says Zeek, adding that he had no idea it would prove to be such a huge hit. With the song, the Pashto music market has scaled new heights. Zeek receives countless emails daily and scribbles autographs for an even larger number of fans mostly comprising school and college students. “Bibi Sheerinay is originally a wedding song most often sung by women. But a famous Afghan singer and music director Gul Zaman picked it up in the early 1960s and Khiyal Mohammad sang it for Peshawar radio in the ’70s. Since then it has remained popular among Pakhtun music buffs.”

I've noticed that this and lot of Afghan songs are categorized as Qataghani. Can anyone explain what Qataghani is exactly? Google couldn't really help me, but I assume it's a type of folk music.
And if someone could provide a translation of the opening lines along with a summary of what the song's about, I would really appreciate it.
it's a kind of song, it has a specific kind of beat and melody, i'm not too sure how to describe it, so here are a few examples:

the first two are more traditional, these two by valy are kinda 'modern'
he can't pronounce qataghan properly though, he says 'ghataghan' lol
