The women reviving a vanishing legacy of Sufi music in Kashmir

In Indian-administered Kashmir, Yemberzal is the very first all-females Sufiyana songs team. This music – which experienced been dying out in the region – was a uniquely male custom.

Men and women have attempted to set the team down in a lot of techniques, such as telling them that Sufiyana wasn’t meant for gals. Just one of the group’s fathers was harassed by his neighbours.

At the very least two of the users, Irfana and Gulshan, want to open a Sufiyana music university right after they finish college.

BBC Monitoring presents a Yemberzal general performance in the Himalayas and talks to them about the favourable impact they have had in the region.
