Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Ustad Mohammad Hussain Sarahang (1924-1983) was a musician, author, composer, and vocalist from Kabul, Afghanistan. His father, Peshawar musician Ustad Ghulam Hussian, taught him the basics of music when he was a child. When he grew older, he traveled to India to study the Patiala style of singing under Ashiq Ali Khan. He was known for performing khayals, thumris, taranas, and ghazals--which are genres of classical and semi-classical music. He published two books on the topic of music and composed his own ragas. He was given the title Sarahang by the government of Afghanistan for his talent.
