About Khyal Muhammad Ustad Khyal Muhammad (Pashto: استاد خیال محمد) (Born 1946) is a Pashto singer from the North-West Frontier Province in Pakistan. He has appeared regularly on television, usually singing ghazals and in movies.Khyal Mohammad belongs to the Afridi tribe of Pushtuns. He was born in Peshawar in 1946 to a musical family. His brother Saif Ul-Maluk was a popular singer in the 1960s, who often performed on Radio Peshawar. Saif introduced him to the radio station, where he first performed in 1958 at age of thirteen. However, for the next ten years he mainly restricted himself to playing instruments such as the tabla and harmonium. In the late 1960s he began singing and recording ghazals, traditional Pashto poems, a daring gamble since the music scene at that time was dominated by folk music. His unique style soon became popular in Peshawar and the NWFP. After establishing his name on the local radio, in 1973-74 Khyal Mohammad appeared in his first movie, Dara-i-Khyber, one of the first "Pollywood" pashto movies. This gave his career a kick-start, and since then he has appeared in many other movies. As his popularity continued to grow, he has often toured in Afghanistan, Europe, the UAR and the USA. Over the years he has recorded a huge volume of music, and has also appeared as a playback singer in many movies, winning many awards. He has been called the Elvis Presley of pashto music.
