Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs Mentioning 'Afghanistan'/'Afghan'
Subject: RE: Sarzamine Man (in Dari)
I have seen several commentators to some of the various recordings of Saramine Man on youtube saying the original lyrics were written by Amir Jan Sabori. The recording by Daoud Sarkhosh made the song famous. One person says the song was originally Turkish and Sabori made an Afghan version. Another person thanks Sabori for the lyrics and Turks for the composition (whether the tune or the whole original is not clear)
