Fakir Zulfiqar primarily plays Boreendo, a thousands of years old musical instrument made of clay that was discovered in Mohen Jo Daro. Fakir lives in KT Mir Mohammed, a small village in rural Sindh and has single-handedly preserved this rare instrument. Apart from Boreendo, he enjoys playing Narr (bamboo flute depicted in the Illustration above), and Tambooro (Fakir's Tambooro sounds pretty much like ukulele with a Sindhi touch). He is also skilled in making these instruments himself.
His talent was passed on to him by his well-respected father Late Mir Mohammed Fakir.
Fakir has a distinctive style of playing instruments. I am especially amazed at how he plays Narr with only one hand. Sometimes he effortlessly plays Narr and Tambooro together. His buoyant personality is reflected in his style of playing music. I added the peacock inspired by Lord Krishna, as well as the harmony that Thari people live in with peacocks. In Hinduism, peacock feather symbolises divine wisdom & self awareness.
My art is my conversation with my ancestors, a tool for me to dig deeper into my roots, a cave for my unaccepted darkness and a path to my undiscovered light.
A central theme of my art is the relationship between humanity and nature, oftentimes the underlying thread that ties together my work and establishes my individual artistic voice.
