Popular Pashto singer Sardar Yousafzai and his orchestra came under attack by the Taliban while travelling through North West Pakistan. Musicians were shot and killed in the Taliban’s attemps to censor and control musical expression in the region. The son of murdered Pipe Organ player Anwar Gul is also a musician and said: “My family is facing hard times these days. I don’t know how to survive in this suffocating environment. We are helpless.”
