Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Homayoun Sakhi is an Afghan-born player of the Afghan Rubab, an instrument of which he is considered a master. Since moving to the United States, he has collaborated with the Kronos Quartet and others. Sakhi was born in 1976 in Kabul into a family of musicians; he learned to play the rubab from his father. He moved to the United States in 2002 and lives in Fremont, California ("Little Kabul"), where he teaches Afghan music at a children's school he opened. Sakhi's music is heard on two CDs from Smithsonian Folkways: The Art of the Afghan Rubab: Music of Central Asia Vol. 3 (2006), a solo album, and Rainbow: Music of Central Asia Vol. 8 (2010), a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet and others. He has collaborated with santoor player Rahul Sharma and was a resident at Brandeis University. Dawn Elder brought him together with Afghan singer Mahwash, with whom he formed the group Voices of Afghanistan
