Pashto Music: Javed Akhtar Zalim Music

I dont know why but the northwest part of Pakistan fascinates me a lot. Not only it is perhaps the "probable" entry point of Aryans(or now a days Aryan languages) in India but it is also a unique and fascinating area for culture-vultures like us. Whether it is the slik route or the kalash people or the Uzbecks/kirgs/Tajiks, the whole region to me is sort of a place where central asian meets greek meets indo-european. Enough now, and lets hear a folk beautiful song in Pashto/urdu. Pashto is the language of Pathans(Pakhtuns/Pashtun). Notice the beautiful folk instruments, IMHO little sound effects and some polish can make it a numero uno chart topper.
