Sohrab Fakir (1934 – October 23, 2009) was a Sufi singer. His full name is Sohrab Fakir Khaskhely. He was born in 1934 in Khairpur Mir’s. His father, Hamal Fakir, was a disciple of Kush Khair Muhammad Fakir.
Sohrab Fakir was recognized as the greatest living Sindhi folk singer in his style of music, playing the yaktaro (single stringed instrument) and chappar (wooden clappers). Sadly, a paralytic stroke had recently left Saaiin Sohrab voiceless. He spent some of his final days at a Sufi shrine in Sindh. Aptly perhaps, the Fakir’s rendering of a folk prayer asking for the intercession of the grace of Shah Latif is also included in this collection.
He started singing with his uncles at eight years old . He went to Khan Sahab Khety Khan in Rohri for more musical education. He sung his first song at shrine of Kush Khair Muhammad, was Kadhy Kadam Kaya Khan Bahar Ker.
He started his career on Radio Pakistan, Khairpur with famous Raag (song) of Gamdil Fakir, Galiyan Prem Nagar Diyan, and he became famous everywhere in country.
Soharab Fakir was given the Sachal Award for his achievements.
