Due to their distinctive and melodic voices, young singers in the Kashmir Valley are making their mark at the local and national levels. Now, they are stepping forward to teach those who have a passion for singing.To do this, two Kashmiri singers Irfan and Bilal have founded the “Mizrab” organisation, where they train aspiring vocalists in music. Irfan and Bilal are two friends who started their careers together. Bilal hails from the Bemina area of Srinagar while Irfan Noorbagh hails from Srinagar.Irfan and Bilal became well-known in the early years of the twenty-first century thanks to their Kashmiri song “Zamane Pokh Na Hum Dum Toti Kya Go,” and as a result, both of them created a school where they could both teach music.In 2020, this institution, which had been established in 2011, received government support as well, as a result of which it was given a place in Chhatabal, Srinagar.
Bilal stated that more than 133 students, including young boys and girls, and senior citizens, are currently taking music lessons at this one-of-a-kind facility in the Kashmir Valley. He said that his youngest student is three years old while the oldest is an 80-year-old man. His favourite was to say that music has no age, which he got clear proof from his own institution.
The students who came to learn music in Bilal’s institution expressed confidence and said that they are given information not only about music but also about history, which increases their knowledge.
