The video was first shared on Facebook by a page called Culture de Kashmir. The four-minute-long video shows the two talented musicians creating heavenly music using the musical instruments santoor and rabab. Santoor, a native of Jammu and Kashmir, is also the national instrument of Iran, and has 72 strings. Rabaab is a plectrum device used to strike these chords, to create musical sounds.

According to a Hindustan Times report, the two young musicians are Zubair Ahmad, 22 years old and Umar Majeed, 18 years old. Majeed who is seen playing the santoor, said that musicians are ‘azad’ and that they will be of no worth without their music, the report said. “There is no other motive to my rendition of Pakistan’s national anthem,” Hindustan Times quoted them as saying.
