Zarsanga is a famous Pashto singer from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. She is widely known as The Queen Of Pashtun Folklore. She was born in 1946 at Zafar Mamakhel, a small village of Lakki Marwat. She belongs to a nomadic tribe called Kutanree (Kutan).
The people on both sides of the Durand Line (Pakistan-Afghan border) would earnestly enjoy Zarsanga's songs. She got no education so she cannot sing from a written paper. Most often she sings the songs that are composed and created by the common folk.
French researcher, Miss Kia, who worked with Radio France, once said Zar Sanga’s voice was the only mountainous voice in the Pashto language. Miss Kia took Zar Sanga to France for a musical concert. In France, many people were fascinated by her sweet melodies.
The famous musical numbers of Zar Sanga, which she never misses at any musical event she plays are Da Bangriwal Pa Choli Ma Za (her first-ever song on radio), Zma Da Khro Jamo Yara, Rasha Mama Zwi De, Zma Da Ghrono Pana Yara, and Kht Me Zanzeri De. Zar Sanga has been to Germany, Belgium, Iraq, Dubai, America, France and UK and has enthralled thousands of Pakhtuns and local people with her voice.
