AZMAT KHAN | 10 years ago | Reply I HAVE MANY MANY GOOD WISHES FOR RAFI PEER THEATRE. SUFI MUSIC FESTIVAL SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED AND APPRECIATED. THEY ARE ALMOST PIONEERS IN REVIVAL OF HERITAGE OF PERFORMING ART.THEY NEED TO BE ENCOURAGED FINANCIALLY AND IN MANAGERIAL MATTERS ALSO TO CONTINUE THEIR WORK. SIMILARLY AJOKA THEATRE DESERVES ATTENTION. I HAD NEVER A CHANCE TO WATCH GREAT AGHA HASHAR IN ACTION.BUT I HAD SEEN BALI JATTI AND USTAD GAMAN PAWALI OF SARAIKI BELT AND THEIR THEATRES IN ACTION.WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE LEGACIES.
