     Funkar International is sponsoring a Rabab workshop for eight weeks , in Srinagar, Kashmir. Habib Wardak will be teaching serious students the art of playing this magnificent, traditional instrument of Kashmir. Last year in June, Habib conducted the Rabab Revival workshop in Srinagar. Forty students participated, ranging from 6 years to 35 years of age. Habib is now back to follow up on what he started last year. We are very excited to carry on this very important project forward.

     Kashmir is witnessing a revolution in the music world. Some of the bands that have made their names are "Bloodrokz", "Dying Breed" and ofcourse Irfan and Bilal from the Flamingo Music school. These bands are making their mark by singing in Kashmiri as well. Some of them have plans to revive the Kashmiri literature through music.
