Hidden Musics

Friday

Hailing from the Pakistani province Balochistan, Ustad Noor Bakhsh is a master of the Balochi Benju (a type of zither fitted with a keyboard). He is also an expert at the Benju, a Japanese children's toy turned folk instrument by names like Bilawal Belgium and Misri Khan Jamali, whose legacies Noor Bakhsh carries forward around the world nowadays. Throughout the Makran Coast, his name is the stuff of legend - but he only recently garnered wider attention after recordings of his playing went viral online.
