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.
