The Lower Mainland, although a culturally rich area, still has a ways to go when it comes to bringing these cultures together. As an Afghani Canadian who grew up in Indian culture, I feel it is my duty to bring the raw and natural talent of our community to the forefront of our young people’s attention, while reminding and rekindling the memories of our older generation of peers. Yama’s wish is to contribute back to the music industry. Coming from a family where music runs in their blood, Yama launched his own Entertainment business. It paved the way to share his vision, bring the highest caliber of entertainment back into the industry, and share this experience with the audience. When you ask Yama “Why this? Why now? Why you?” He put it plainly; “From generation to generation, our love of music has been passed along our familial gathering, memories, and dreams. I feel it is my honor to ensure that my kids, the children of those who’ve grown up in the same culture, and those who wisht to learn more about our musical history can have a place to pass on the torch and keep the flame burning.” Well said, Yama! From a long line of historical contributions to the Indian and Afghani music community, his aim is to take his entrepreneurial skills and continue his family’s legacy and love of music. He believes music has no boundaries, religion, language, ethnicity, or political standpoint. His events bring together a wide array of music and entertainment lovers in a neutral space.
His most recent endeavor included the incredible musical talent of his father, Ustad Eltaf Hussain Sarahang. A whole house of attendees came to witness the masterful night, and it elicited nothing but praise from them. His event sponsors ensured this would not be the last of significant events hosted by the youngest contributor to the Sarahang Legacy. Yama brings a new perspective to the music community. It not only delivers a wide range of cultures together but shares a timeless love for music and entertainment that transcends generations of listeners and viewers. We can say that this is another strong pillar in the community of young devotees to music. The enthusiasm stays alive on the foundation of this shared love through immersive entertainment. Those around Yama are excited to continue enjoying the journey that will come to be with his new business and entertainment venture—Sarahang Entertainment. Yama@SarahangEntertainment.com
