I express my gratitude to the Higher Education Depart­ment, Government of J & K State, whose valuable sug­gestions helped me complete this work.
I owe a profound debt of gratitude to Ghulam Rasool Bhat Ex-Librarian (Curator), Research Library, University of J & K who took pains in reading and translating the Persian manuscripts. He also assisted me in tracing anti utilizing these primary sources.

I am highly indebted to Mohammad Bhat who is the Kashmiri writer possessing relevant knowledge on the subject and his original contribution to traditional music is notable.
I owe my gratitude to the library of Pamposh School located in Pamposh Enclave, New Delhi for allowing to use the rich literature of the culture of Kashmir, from time to time.
I thank the contributions of the monthly magazine "Koshur-Samachar" whose articles went a long way in providing me guidance about the traditional music of Kashmir.
I am deeply indebted to all those who have helped me in writing this book and supported me throughout this endeavour.
Since last year, I have met various musicologist artists, journalists, scholars and several acquaintances and friends of Kashmir who all generously shared with me their memories of Culture & Folk Music of Kashmir. I owe special gratitude to them all.
I would also like to thank several Kashmiri media personalities whose expert and invaluable comments on Kashmiri music in prominent dailies and magazines have been quoted by me in this book.
