About Dawood Sarkhosh
Dawood Sarkhosh (Persian: داوود سرخوش) (also spelled as Daud Sarkhosh) is an Afghan poet, singer, and musician. An ethnic Hazara, Dawood Sarkhosh was born in 1971 in the Daikundi region of Uruzgan province in Central Afghanistan. Sarkhosh started writing poetry at the age of nine; his inspiration came from his elder brother, Sarwar Sarkhosh, who was a prominent artist in the region. Sarkhosh learned from him and started playing dumbura and singing at seventeen. At the time musicians were deeply discriminated against. His brother was killed when Sarkhosh was in his twenties, and his family fled, first to Peshawar and finally to Quetta, Pakistan. Sarkhosh revived his skills by singing and composing songs inspired by a sense of nationalism and suffering in exile. He didn't sing for commercial gain, but out of nostalgia and to convey the feelings about refugee life as experienced by refugees of Afghanisatn dispersed throughout the world. They went to his concerts in their thousands, marking Sarkhosh's rise as a singer. It was in Quetta that he mastered the harmonium under the Pakistani composer Arbab Ali Khan. Sarkhosh currently lives in Austria. He is married to Kubra Nekzad Sarkhosh; they have three children: Saboor, Zulfiqar, and Yasir.
