Salaamuna Grano Dostano-
I wanted to express my sincere appreciation regarding an evening
of fine Afghan music by an outstanding and loved artist of Afghanistan,
Farhad-Jaan Darya had the pleasure of attending this cultural event
on October 26, 2002 at Flamingo Palace in Fremont, California.
I feel that his style is quite unique in comparison to other Afghan
Artists. An example that illustrates his unique style was his grand
entrance into the hall. The lights were dimmed and he walked in
with lights on him and he had the biggest and warmest smile on his
face, singing "Dunya Guzaran". It was a delightful way
to make his way to the stage. The whole evening, we heard beautiful
tunes both traditional and modern and the best part was that the
smile remained on his face the whole time. I truly appreciate an
artist who cares about his audience. Another point worthy of mentioning
is that all Afghans enjoyed his music as he made an effort to sing
in both Pashto and Dari.
I also had the pleasure of meeting him backstage and congratulating
him on an excellent performance. He was the most humble and respectful
Afghan artist that I have ever met. He also made a promise that
he will visit the Bay Area at least once a year-and we hold him

From: M. A.
Dear Farhad Jan,
2002 is almost over and your CD promised to be released in 2001
not out. I am dying to hear something new and wonderful, when this
will be released? Please don't make us give up on you. I will never
do so, but I am angry. The only way I get to hear you is through
published music CDs. I, and many more like me, can't make it to
LA or SF or
other locations to see you in concert. So please, don't forget your

. . . How can I express my feelings to you while I found your web
It was really a good time. I was crossing Pul -e- Baghe Omomi.
Near Ketab Froshi, I came across to a magazine with the name of

web site there, it
was incredible for me. Soon I wrote a message to you. I don't know
you have received that or not?
I was the one who contacted you from Kandahar. Do you remember me?
Hope to have more news from you.

Salaam Farhad Jan.
First of all I would like to thank you and your band for your awesome
concert. It was really delightful and really enjoyable. I attended
your concert and took a picture with you. After 3 years, my dream
came true in Vancouver, and my dream was to listen the Song from
your own Beautiful voice "Khodam en so delam on soye Darya".
All of your songs are the best, but this is just for I LOVE THIS
SONG. And also congregations for being "The Leading Singer
Thanks for your great performance in Vancouver.

Subj: What A Concert?
What can I say about your concert in Vancouver?
Oh, It was really good and fantastic however the time passed so
quickly and we all were (GHORA BA DIL) at he end.
We all are really proud of you since you are such an excellent singer
Wow, your new song (????????? ????). Wherever I go, this song comes
in my ears.
However I wanted to come at the end and talk to you and take some
pictures with you or have your signature in my dairy as everyone
wishes, but seeing the situation and some reasons that you know
better than me didn't let me to do so.
Anyway, Thanks for doing such a good performance and wish you a
long and happy life.

From: [email protected]
Dear Farhad Jaan Darya:
A very quick note to convey my warmest regards and sincere hellos
to you. I attended your recent concert in Bay Area (Fremont), and
I must say that I was very proud!!! Because of the repeat and "copycat"
singers that steal the image of Ahmad Zahir and other Afghan and
Persian singers, I had stopped going to concerts until now. I must
say the ensemble of the foreign musicians was a classy addition
to the group, which made it more enjoyable.
I have heard good stories of you from my uncle who was a dear friend
of beloved Qahar Shaheed. I have spent most of life in the US and
was raised here, but my passion for my motherland and its roots
is too strong to even express in words.
I wish you health, success, and happiness along with the rest of

DEAREST FARHAD JAN,
HOPE U ARE DOING VERY WELL. AND I AM REALLY HAPPY TO BE IN CONTACT
WITH U. I AM AN AFGHAN GIRL WHO LIKES UR VOICE ALOT AND HOPES TO
HEAR FROM U TOO . . . .
. . . WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND WARM SALAM FROM KABUL!
WAITING FORWARD TO HEAR FROM U SOON!
Salam Farhad jan Darya!
I am one of your greatest fans not just here in America, but in
our homeland Afghanistan, Kabul. I was just 15 years old when I
became your die hearted fan, and yet that I am 27 years old, no
singer has ever been so close to my heart and my soul as you are.
You are not just a singer but also a great personality with a great
In my family everybody is your die heart fan.
The type of poems that you select for your songs represents that
you have a wonderful taste.
I know all of your songs by heart and I love your taste of poetry
I love poems of late Qahar Asi who was not just a poet, but a wonderful
and great friend of yours. Yadash zinda baadaa..
You know Farhad Jan what makes you a unique artist? Because you
sing from your heart and your soul, you live for music, and plus,
you are a person with heart. In other word, you are (Sahib Del)
that is what makes you precious and unique from all other singers
and that is why I love your music. I was in your Oct 26 concert
in Flamingo Palace that was one of the happiest nights in my life;
I got your autograph too. But I never got a chance to thank you
for your enjoyable and brilliant concert. I always wanted to meet
you in person and tell you how a die heart fan of yours I was, but
I never saw you so close as I did on your concert except in one
or two occasions in Kabul. One time you and Asi were passing by
our Block in Macroyan, Kabul and the other time you were attending
an engagement party of one of our neighbors and I got a chance to
say Hello to you, and you sayed Hello in return and smiled at me.
I got so happy that I would never forget that moment. Farhad Jan,
I am Personally in love with your classical music (ghazal) and I
think you rock in singing ghazal. Please sing a few ghazals in your
next CD. Farhad Jan, I do not want to take your time or put pressure
on you that you should respond to my Email, but if you want to just
respond to me as a fan you can. thanks a lot for your time.

From: Ferough, California
I just want to tell you that you did an excellent work in your concert
in Fremont California. Everyone loved it. It was very different
from any other singer and it was a real concert. We all tired of
"one keyboard' concerts. What you did will make all other singers
to step up and contribute to afghan music and spend some time and
money to bring our music to the next level. You are a legendary
singer and we all proud of you.
I would like to know when and where the next concert of Farhad Darya
would be. I have missed his concerts twice. Any concerts in Virginia?
Dear Farhad jan,
Thank you so much for your reply to my message and I really appreciate
that. I told my family about your message and they all say their
salaams to you. Sorry that we weren't here the last time you had
a show in Denver. Hopefully next time inshallah..
Sometimes I have hard time understanding some of your ghazals, songs,
but my eldest sister helps me out with the meaning. I like all your
songs and you are very hardworking, creative and very respected
amongst our people.
So keep on the good work and my best wishes to you.

I am a 20-year-old girl living in Denver, Colorado. I really admire

I want to know when do you come for Concert to Germany???
Sorry my English is not good.
I hope you understand me
Dear Mr. Farhad,
I am a 22 yr. old female Afghan. I am a senior in college. I listen
to your music all the time. Your a magnificent singer and songwriter.
My question is I would like to pursue a singing career. I have extensive
vocal and theatre training. However, I feel it would be the best
for me to start with my roots. But I don't know where to begin or
would I even be accepted.
I often feel skeptical about female Afghan singers. I am not sure
if our time has come yet. Or if it has, could they handle it in
a respectable way.
I hope you don't mind answering my question. I promised myself after
I finish college I would start making my music dreams into reality.
I would greatly appreciate if you could help me with this.
Best Happiness to your Future.
Salam Farhad jan,
My name is Maroof. I live in New York, and play Tabla and Keyboard.
I'm 12 years old! I enjoy your music very much and thought maybe
we can have contact with each other. Well thank you
