GHALANAI, 22 November: To enthrall local journalists, the Mohmand Press Club on Sunday organized Pashto music concert here wherein local singers and musicians sang songs and played folk musical instruments including rabab-mangay.

Journalists, poets, singers, musicians and a large number of general public attended the concert.

Singers, on this occasion sang tapay and charbetay, which mesmerized the audience.

Talking to TNN a local poet Ghulam Hussain Mohib said the terror wave which had engulfed the whole country over the last decade had caused irreparable damage to our local music. “Such concerts were very common in our tradition.

Tribal people usually arrange rabab-mangy concerts in their weddings and on other social occasions. But this culture diminished as the militancy prevailed in our areas. Now with the passage of time as the law and order situation in Fata gets better, people are being attracted towards music again,” he maintained.
