About Muhammad Iqbal Behleem
Singer, Musician and Composer for Peace

I am a singer and musician devoted to the promotion of Peace through Music. I believe that music has the power to promote conflict transformation by enhancing nonviolence, creativity, and empathy. I want to work together with artists from around the world, for Love & Peace.

I believe music can transcend all barriers, and that it is a wonderful means to express the powerful and dynamic love for life we all feel within ourselves. It is based on this passionate feeling that I love my family, my town Karachi, and its people. That I love my wonderful country, Pakistan, and that I love the world and its six billion inhabitants, without any kind of discrimination based on gender, age, class, nationality, cultural, religious or spiritual background.

I also try to express love and respect for nature, rocks, plants, flowers and animals, through my music.

I feel very fortunate to be able to express my passion for music and peace as an audio producer, composer, songwriter, singer, computer musician and sound engineer.

My mission is to place my musical talents at the service of humanity, lending a helping hand to those suffering from injustice, with the goal of empowering them with hope and energy. I want to use the universal language of music to communicate the beauty of humanity and promote positive peace.

I am living in Hawaii.

I look forward to working together with you for a better world through music, and love for life and people.

With Love, Music, and Peace,

Hov arek sarer (Gomidas) - Dzovinar Boghossian

From: vanart08 | 25. März 2010 |
Gomidas, the Armenian composer and ethnomusicologist, was born Soghomon Soghomonian in 1869 in Kuthaia, Ottoman Turkey. He mastered the art of Armenian liturgical singing and conducted research on Armenian folk and sacred music.He spent eleven years in field work throughout the Ottoman empire, visiting many villages listening to native songs and dances,collecting and transcribing Armenian, Kurdish and Turkish dance tunes and folk songs and investigating the Armenian khaz (neumatic) notation system. His main contribution was to rediscover Armenian folk music.
The 1915-1917 Ottoman genocide of the Armenians was the beginning of Komidas' tragic period which was marked by psychic trauma and artistic loss. In April 1915, with other Armenian intellectuals and artists, Komidas was arrested and deported to the interior of the Empire. While Komidas was spared the fate of his friends who were murdered, upon his return to Constantinople he found his life's work - manuscripts, research findings on the khaz notation system and his library - in total disarray. A full accounting of his manuscripts, including his research notes and preliminary findings an the khaz system has so far eluded scholars.
The years following his experience of the Genocide are shrouded in mystery, and the circumstances of Komidas' eventual mental breakdown in 1919 are not fully documented. He moved to Paris where he spent the rest of his life fluctuating between moments of great lucidy and longer stretches of total mental chaos.
After 1919 Komidas produced no music. He died in Paris in 1935.
