Hailing from a small village Hajam, in Silli district of Jharkhand, Ashar Queri, he recalls with pride of his existence as farmers and folk singers for generations. Earning his living through farming and experiencing the joy of life through music, Ashar learned to sing from his father and grandfather who encouraged him to become part of a group and sing the vanishing village folk songs. Now his son too follows the footsteps of his father and sings just like him. Ashar had never heard his songs himself until Anahad’s team recorded his songs. It was the very first time he heard his own voice in 50 years – a moment he will cherish forever. He hopes the dying village songs can reach more people and the modern generation understands their value. He sings for his own happiness but also believes that he would be happier to share his stories, the songs he sings, the song of Tussu from a small district called Sili in Jharkhand be heard around the world.
