There are no talibs in Punjab and Baluchistan or Sindh the way they are present in pakhtunkhuwa. Also, the demand for the type of music that certain (non contemporary/blatant damtob) musicians have chosen is very low. The rich listen to shameless **** and the poor with class donít have enough money to spend on musicians. No one invests in their music or albums so there is no business for them there.
Also, gulzaar alam moved to Kabul 3 weeks ago.

Nwazenda, Khanenda or Honarmand are common used terms in Dari and which doesnít degrade musicians.
Okay, so Saaz in Pashto means music, and Saazinda means musician. As far as I know they're not specifically derogatory terms in Pashto (i.e. I don't think anyone would use Saazinda as an insult, like they might use Dum), but the person who is a Saazinda would be looked down upon regardless.

I don't know if Saaz is a loan word or not, but if it is I guess it lost it's original meaning in the transition to Pashto.

Or maybe in Parsi it lost t's meaning!

P.S. Why always Pashto is targeted for loaning words from other languages? Can't it be the other way round? I.e. Other Languages loaning from Pashto(which is quite true!)
Also Pashto is older than Persian.

It can also be other way round like @salman47 said.
Saaz has the same meaning in Dari.

Yeah, Iíve heard of that. I hope he receives the respect and haq that he earns for his contribution to pashto music.

The only things respected in Pakistan are affluence material goods and light skin. Any other skill in any way shape or form is not appreciated.
