|Biographical detail : ||Afghan pop star singer
Nasrat had a large fan base in both his native country and its diaspora with his classical Afghan music in his repertoire with his pop songs.
In 1981, at the height of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Parsa’s family left for Pakistan and eventually India, where he continued his study with other respected musicians. The family finally settled in Frankfurt, where Parsa recorded his first album, Laanai-e-Eshq, in 1989. In the following years, he toured the world continually and sold more than a million albums.
Parsa’s long-held dream was to return to Afghanistan. He worked on behalf of its poor, and its refugees, donating proceeds from his concerts to charities.
Nasrat Parsa who was born in Kabul died after being attacked outside his Vancouver hotel, where an argument broke out, at the end of a short Canadian tour for the release of his 10th album, Dil.
