Peshawar had been a culturally rich and vibrant city until the religious extremists started to threaten and dictate its residents’ sociocultural choices. Many artists including musicians and singers were thus forced to relocate to other cities in search of security and living. However there were some individuals and institutions that defied this extremist push and held their grounds, including a Sikh school of music in Jogan Shah area. Established in 1990, this institution of religious and cultural singing has been hosting at an average 250 students every year including migrants from erstwhile FATA.
