HYDER MIRZA is a music lover in Toronto, Canada with a passion for folk music from India, Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. His primary interests as a musician are the Sitar and the Afghan Rabab. He has been learning the Sitar from Ustad Anwar Khurshid for 4 years. Hyder performs at weddings in the GTA where he enjoys playing classic and contemporary Bollywood music as well as regional folk tunes from Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.
Hyder is grateful to those brave artists who make Rababs and Rabab music, putting their life at risk in the face of extremism and violence against music in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Love of music and the Rabab will prevail over extremist ideologies of hatred and violence!
