|sarod recital / live in peshawar|
asad qizilbash / sarod
mustafa khan / tabla
asad qizilbash is the only sarod player in pakistan since 1992, keeping this traditional instrument and its music alive. asad was born in 1963 to the famous violinist k.h. qizilbash, who was responsible for closing the gap between western and eastern classical music. after attending a concert performed by his future master, ustad amjad ali khan, asad decided to devote himself to the instrument. today, asad qizilbash has the honour to perform regularly at his president's house where head of state representatives, monarchs, diplomats and guests from all around the world have witnessed and appreciated his unique style of classical narration.
peshawar is the capital of the north-west frontier province in pakistan. the city, once called purushapura, city of flowers, was the capital of the ancient greco-buddhist centre of gandhara. over the centuries, it has been the entry point to invaders, conquerors andrefugees. it remains an important military crossroad today. asad qizilbash' sarod recital in peshawar was carried out under extremely perilous and rather singular circumstances. an outstanding performance, a moment of freedom from war.
