Aftab’s Summer 2019 Collection

A Yellow-backed Woodpecker, Attributed to Mansur; Mughal Period, circa 1585-90.

وحشت کہاں کہ بے خودی انشا کرے کوئی
ہستی کو لفظِ معنیِ عنقا کرے کوئی

where is the wildness/madness– [such] that someone would write self-lessness?!
[such that] someone would make ‘existence’ a word with the meaning of ‘Anqa‘?

Hello Everyone! It has been two years since our last music update and this website is now over fourteen years old. I want to thank Aftab and all other friends for helping me keep it going for this long, and I hope that you visitors continue to find these precious recordings enjoyable and useful.

کبھی ہم میں تم میں بھی چاہ تھی کبھی ہم سے تم سے بھی راہ تھی
کبھی ہم بھی تم بھی تھے آشنا تمہیں یاد ہو کہ نہ یاد ہو
