Music for Peace

​In 2009, the National Commission for Justice and Peace produced a unique collection of peace songs (Geet Amn kay) in six languages spoken in Pakistan (Seriaki, Sindhi, Balochi, Pashto, Punjabi and Urdu) with translation in Urdu. The songs were recorded in Quetta, Peshawar and Lahore in challenging circumstances.

Artists in Peshawar risked their lives for recording as most of the recording business was forced shut by the militants. We fondly remember Mr. Ali Khudi, a young man from Hazara Shia community who later became victim of a bomb blast in 2015 in Quetta where he had organized recording of the Balochi songs in extremely trying environment.

This production, based on alternative peacebuilding approach used classical and contemporary poetry. The music album was launched in Karachi, Hyderabad, Quetta, Rawalpindi, Multan, Faisalabad, Peshawar and Lahore during 2009-2010. We hope these songs contribute to efforts for fostering a culture of peace.
