Music of Afghanistan:
Filmi song Chal Chal Chal mere Sathi
The films of India and Pakistan were an important source of
songs. These were shown in the cinemas of Kabul and other cities.
Over the years many filmi songs were adopted by Afghan singers and
entered the popular music repertory. This was sung by Mahmud
Khushnawaz at a wedding party in 1977. The text is in Urdu (a
language partly comprehensible to Heratis). The song is addressed
to an elephant.
Mahmud Khushnawaz (vocal and harmonium), Amir Jan Khushnaswaz (rubab), Ghulam Nebi (dutar) and Naim Khushnawaz (tabla).
