Culture is considered as the identity of people, society and nation. Chitral is the most beautiful and peaceful valley of Pakistan. It has its own beautiful culture and traditions, including unique dress, language and beautiful music.
I want to write about Chitrali music, that has its awesome beauty and dignity.
From few years we have been observing a great diversity in our music that is good but not appropriate at all. We have our own very old music culture, why we are transforming our beautiful Chitrali music toward Pashtu music?
I was thinking about this question from few months and I concluded that the big reason behind this is a lack of interest on part of our artists, especially singers, to use their fun in our tradition.
Our beautiful traditional music is going toward a decline and I request all of you to please come forward and raise some voice regarding this through social media and print media.
Pushto music is identity of Pakhtoon people and it will never represent our tradition.
Through this letter, I wholeheartedly request to all poets, song writers and especially singers to promote our music in our own way and tradition.
