Over the years I have had the pleasure of listening to some of Haji Mehboob saheb's recitals and each time that I go back to them there is a twinge and ache for not having sat in front of him and heard him live. What a terrible loss that for ten years I lived only a few miles away in Rawalpindi and knew nothing about him then.
Yet thanks to the kind souls who took the trouble to record him and share his lovely sweet music with us. Each one is a gem to keep and to return to every so often. Enjoy!
The recent delightful visit of Umair Jaffar from Islamabad led to some sharing of images and music and strengthened the belief that Dargahs in Pakistan hold many treasures for those in search of culture, music and good old fashioned poetry.
