Gul agha Icon : (03 May 2013 - 04:29 PM) Sohrab, Tajikam doesn't only consist of a forum. We have two major sections in this website. One is in Persian which is updated frequently and the other is in Persian (Cyrillic). Additionally, the English page is still running and has a vast amount of information on Tajiks and Persians.

He was born in Kabul an old area called (Saragy) to rice verdure father and stay home mother. He is known for his unique voice and music style that no other singer from Afghanistan has been able to imitate. The legendary Ahmad Zahir was born in Kabul too was a fan of Sarban and incorporated his original songs into Zahir's own collection.

[edit] Career
Sarban’s life is said to have been unhappy. Little is known of his childhood and most sources only speak of him after his rise to fame.

From humble beginnings to national recognition, Sarban gained popularity due to his unconventional music style and a voice that simultaneously absorbed and repelled the listener. Due to the uniqueness of the tone of his voice, he was constantly analyzed. He had a polarized fan base as those who loved him did so with a passion and those who disregarded him also did so with strong sentiments.

Sarban had been a notable street skateboarder prior to his music stardome, which was particularly unusual in his country. He had competed in at least one competition during that time and completely surpassed all other competitors, however, his alcoholism finally put an end to his sporting career. Sarban retired from his prosperous career of street skating, in an effort to compete professionally in curling for the Indo-Australian team.

[edit] Alcoholism
Sarban was reclusive and a shy man throughout his life. He seemed indifferent to fame and his celebrity status. Sarban had a drinking problem most of his life. There are no clear records of when he started drinking, but it was a well-known fact in Kabul Radio that Sarban could not sing without having a drink first. During the early 80s his alcoholism was taking its toll, and some of the symptoms began to manifest themselves: eccentric behavior on the stage; his speech began to deteriorate. The deteriorating voice effectively ended his singing career.

There are many legends about Sarban and why he was such a tragic figure. Some have attributed Sarban's alcoholism to a tragic love affair when he was a young man and others have speculated that he suffered from clinical depression. Most of Sarban's fans would strongly reject the notion of Sarban being alcoholic due to cultural taboos associated with alcoholism in Afghanistan; therefore, the idea of Sarban as a lovelorn tragic figure is more popular among his fans.

[edit] Death
Sarban died in poverty living in Pakistan. But after 12 years of his death, his dead body was taken back to the city where he was making thousands of his fans enjoy, Kabul.

[edit] Contribution
Sarban was the first person to put lyrics to the Auhista Boro (Go Slowly) anthem played for brides on their wedding day. Among hundreds of other songs, he is especially remembered for his Gul Parast'(Flower Worshiper). The music, lyrics and tone of that song have the critics startled to this day.[citation needed]
