“Bridge of love”: Iranian, Kashmiri musicians come together for this Sufi melody

The coronavirus pandemic gave way to an improbable musical collaboration between Kashmiri and Iranian artists in the United States.
Kashmiri Sufi singer Qaiser Nizami was stranded in the US after he had gone to perform Kashmiri music and recite poetry at a university there, in March—an event cancelled due to the pandemic. “The situation kept worsening and the programme was later converted into a live session about Kashmiri poetry,” he said.
