The Forgotten Folk

Archiving the Dying Craft and Lives of Lahore’s Classical Musicians

Hello! Welcome to our proudest work—”The Forgotten Folk”, our very own oral history project. Over here, you’ll find the exclusive interviews and biographies of various musicians, both retired and active.  This is our attempt to catalogue Lahore’s classical musicians’ experiences and musical knowledge.  


Here we record the biographies of every single musician we have interviewed, complete with important dates, their family details and a short summary of their life.


Here we publish musicians’ in-depth interviews, which include video excerpts from our on-site recordings.
