Hi PF,

take a look at the recent 'Peace day' in Kabul.

Take a special close-look at Pashto signs[especially on the kite] and how its clearly represented in the Afghan capital side by side with its brother Dari.

Music is in the blood of the little Pashtun singer Jawad Hussain, who wants to follow his family tradition and pursue a career in singing.

When his debut album Da Khkulo Badshahi was released in September 2008, it broke all previous records of Pashto music charts made by child stars before him. More than two million copies of this album were sold in the USA, the UK, Germany, Afghanistan, Malaysia, China, Dubai and Qatar where many Pashtuns live.

One of the hit songs of this album is “Mala jawab raka” — the song became so popular that a film producer produced a Pashto movie under the same title and surprisingly enough, it made good business.

“For me it was not that difficult to plunge into the field of music but somehow my parents were reluctant to allow me to sing in public however, I proved my mettle,” informs Jawad who is in grade 7 and studies in a private school in Peshawar.

“I initiated it on my own. When I was in grade 3, I started participating in singing competitions in school. Impressed with my singing skills, my teachers encouraged me a lot,” expresses Jawad who, at such a tender age, has performed on stage, radio and TV and ultimately convinced his parents too of his talent.

Jawad is a fan of legends like Khayal Muhammad, Shah Wali Ustad, Gulnar Begum and pop singers like Rahim Shah and Zeek Afridi. Jawad also played a minor role in a TV drama Da Watan Gul but his forte is singing.

The talented and ambitious little star has been receiving proper training from popular music composer and singer Master Ali Haider. “I am also learning to play harmonium from my father because without proper training and practice, you stand nowhere,” observes Jawad.

He has been thrice to Dubai and many times to Kabul for music concerts. Recently he completed work on two more Pashto albums for Eid release. “I like folk songs but light ghazal touches my heart. Mehdi Hassan and Ghulam Ali are my favourite ghazal singers. I want to do MA in music from abroad,” expresses the shining Pashtun star.

Jawad Hussain narrates an interesting story which made him believe that his popularity being a singer really saved him and his entourage. “Two months ago me and my associates were travelling in a car to Kabul to participate in a music concert. As we reached Pul-e-Charkhi, a police check post near Kabul, our car was intercepted by four police guards and they asked us to get down. We did not have any legal documents as on many occasions where we are officially invited, we don’t carry travel documents with us.

“The policemen said we must produce some legal papers otherwise we would be locked for interrogation but then fortunately, one of the policemen recognised me as he had watched my performance on an Afghan TV channel, Shamshad, and they not only allowed us to go but also escorted us to Kabul,” he recalls.

Besides singing Pashto songs written by local poets such as Laiq Zada Laiq and Malang Jan, Jawad also enjoys singing Urdu and English songs by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Britney Spears, respectively.

JALALABAD : A daylong seminar, attended by around 1,000 Pakistani and Afghan poets, writers, journalists and singers, was held in this eastern city to discuss the current state of Pashto music.
The seminar began with messages from President Hamid Karzai and Minister of Information and Culture Makhdoom Rahim. They urged the participants to bring local colour to their music.
Addressing the participants, Deputy Governor of Nangarhar Dr. Alam Ishaqzai highlighted the eastern zone's music as well as the financial problems facing singers and musicians.
President of Writers' Association Lal Pacha Azmoon said the objective behind the event was to explore ways of undoing the "growing influence of the cultural invasion on Pashto music." He said several books had been published on the subject.
On the occasion, the Ustad Awal Mir and Sohbat Khan Marghaz medals were conferred on renowned singers Khiyal Muhammad and Ustad Gul Zaman.
Speaking to Pajhwok Afghan News, Ustad Gul Zaman praised the existing standards of Pashto poetry but voiced concern at the loss of local touch in music. He asked singers and artists to stop following foreign music trends.
Khiyal Muhammad said much of Pashto music was Afghan music in its pristine form. The celebrated songster was happy to attend the seminar, which he hoped would go a long way in enriching Pashto music.

Awesome!!!!That is indeed a very positive thing to know.Our artists get the least respect, protection, and admiration from government and people alike. They are threatened, abused, and killed.Creativity needs freedom; the present suffocating environment is not conducive for our music industry in particular and culture in general.One of our most celebrated singers Haroon Bacha had to take asylum in USA because of death threats. I wonder how can creativity thrive in such harsh circumstances?

I sometimes even wonder myself. When I find out there is a new Pashto song, I think too myself like really? A new Pashto song? I guess things might not be as horrible as they appear? Media exaggeration? However, creativity thrives because our people brave, ambitious and self-dedicated.:smile1:

I hardly doubt that it could be exeggeration.It is a fact that Gulzar Alam was tortured and so is the fact that a lot of music shops have been destroyed.The Nishtar Hall in Peshawar was closed in MMA government and a lot of those artists left the profession. But I agree with your last sentence because some really nice songs about the present plight of Pashtun nation have been produced in the last couple of years. Still it does not negate the fact that music shops have been destroyed and artists still receive threats. For many artists, music is a profession from which they make money. If you can't do concerts, sell their talent, and get appreciated by people, for how long will they thrive in such situation?

KABUL (PAN): Farid, 25, was absorbed in the film playing on the cinema screen, and would not be disturbed even to answer a journalist’s question.
“It is a very interesting scene, if you want to watch it, come and sit with me, otherwise don’t disturb me,” he snapped.
Afghans have always loved films, but under the Taliban they were banned from watching movies or TV. Since the fall of the Taliban in late 2001, Afghan cinefiles have again been flocking to the cinema.
But the past nine months have seen a change. Instead of Indian and Afghan films, Kabul cinemas have been showing Pakistani Pahsto movies, which are attracting young men with their prolific love scenes and semi-naked actresses. Some of the moviegoers do not even speak Pashto.
Farid, who was watching the film avidly, would sometimes clap and whistle during scenes he liked.
“I am a youth and the Pakistani movies have nice and lovely scenes and that is why I like them a lot,” he told Pajhwok Afghan News, during a break.
As Indian and Afghan movies are broadcast on TV, they have become boring, he said. Although he does not know Pashto, he said: “When you see these movies once, you will want to watch them again and again.”
While seven cinemas opened in Kabul after the Taliban were ousted, only five are operating now. Three of them screen Pashto movies three times a day.
At the Pamir, between 200 to 300 people attend each screening, paying 50 afghanis ($1.10) a time.
Most are unemployed and watch films because they have nothing else to do. “I am jobless and I want to pass my time here,” said Abdul Saboor, while watching a movie at Pamir Cinema.
He said he liked Pakistani movies for two reasons. The first was because he understands Pashto and the second was because of the love scenes.
The director of Pamir Cinema, Mohammad Nadar, said TV channels were not able to make their own films, so kept broadcasting the same ones, which was boring for people.
Although he acknowledged that a big draw of the Pakistani films was the explicit love scenes, he said there were censors who would cut the illicit scenes.
“Some of the Indian movies shown on TV are even more illicit,” Nadar said.
The head of Afghan Film, Latif Ahmadi, said that there was no clear policy about which films should be allowed and which should be banned. But he said that if the film insults Islamic teachings, it should not be screened in the country.
“We do not have standards or regulations for cinemas,” he said.
Film director, Siddq Barmak, said Afghan movies were made on a cheap budget and with low quality equipment so they could not compete with films from other countries.
He said the Pakistani Pashto movies did not provide any insight into the culture of Pashtuns on the other side of the border and if they were not banned could have a bad impact on the young generation. “These movies can misguide our society, particularly the youth,” he said.
He also complained about the state of cinemas in Kabul.
“Before the civil war, the cinema was a protected place and place of enjoyment, but now they have become a second home for youth addicted to hashish and other drugs,” he said.
Residents of Kabul also say the condition of the cinemas has deteriorated and it is no longer a pleasant experience to watch a film.
In the past, cinemas were places people would go to lift away some of their tiredness, said Ghulam Mohammad, 50, a resident of Kabul.
“Now cinemas are places for drug addicts and street boys,” he said.
Abdul Hafiz, a resident of Khairkhana area of the city, does not like to go to the cinema. The environment at the cinema is not good and the movies are not according to the Afghan tradition, he said.
“If good movies are imported, which can change the lives of people and the street boys are not allowed in to the cinema, everyone would watch movies,” he said.
According to the union of film directors, there are 20 film production companies registered with Afghan Film, but only some are operating.
Compared to TV and radio, cinema has a long history in Afghanistan. Cinema started operating in Afghanistan during the era of King Amanullah Khan (1919-1929). The first cinema opened in Paghman district of Kabul province.

The cinemas in Kabul usually shows Bollywood films, many of the oldie ones.

I've heard from time to time that Titanic is still played a lot, especially since the fall of the Taliban.

A few Pashto and other Afghans movies are played too.

My late uncle was an Actor, and his movies were played during the 80's but then his tapes were ruined in the 90's.

During the days, men were not able to wear pahran tumban in the cinemas, they had to wear pants over it or something.

However, now women are not allowed in the cinemas.

Now the cinemas are filled with bad, street boys. Mostly ones that are louchaki.

They showed this Pashto movie called: Kundazoi......about that Kabuli kilwali young man, who did not have a father around....i am sure you all know which movie i am talking about ;)


But it is a nice change to see Pashto films playing now.....a great change.

Yeah, during that time, you cannot wear partug kameez/pahran tumban when going inside the cinema. you had to wear jeans/pants. I am really not sure if they keep this rule now. But i doubt it.

if u want to bankroll the production of afghan films, then by all means.

although it would be 99.9% cheaper to dub classics like the godfather or the good the bad and the ugly. good clean films with awesome story telling.

Sangar,
I like how you always take things out of context, it's more like your speciality, if I may add. As far your silly post is concerned, let me put it in more elementary terms for you. Generally speaking, the main aim behind a Afghan student associations is "preserving our Afghan culture" no where did I imply that the NYU's ASU is preserving our culture, although they probably are, you and I might never know. The video that is posted is supposedly a "joke". Always ask for a clarification before you begin your rants. Comprehension is fundamental. Aren't assumptions, that have no base, against Islam? Here you are, at it again, assuming that I support XYZ just because you said so. No evidence what so ever again, But that's not a surprise for our inarticulate Sangar.

Caveat:
If you had an ounce of logic present in your head, you would have noticed how I criticized certain aspects of these "organizations" in my initial post.

Again, its just supposed to be funny, nothing else. Whatever they are making fun of is not the mission of the MSA, ASA or whatever other culture/religious organization. It's just for entertainment purposes.
