Dawood geting award
Dawood Sarkhosh is a prominent and well known personality in the modern Afghan music scene with a style all of his own. His greatest achievement has been the skillful combination of commitment and art. In other words, he has not only delivered music to familiar ears but has tried to reach those forbidden from listening to music with the hope of familiarizing them with a flavour of it. That is why he is considered as a pioneer in this field.

The dynamic personality of Sarkhosh flows amongst the affliction of his people’s misfortunes towards newer horizons. He is without any doubt one of the corner stones of our music.

Dawood has been bearing with him the native soul of the Hazarejat sonnet and eulogy filled with the wartime lamentation of homeless evacuees, with the social understanding that music brings, he has arrived at an outstanding and unique place which reveals a requiem of suffering and sorrow, in which he has rescued with boldness long forgotten treasures of poetry and music in the hope of preserving our culture.
