Strut present the first compilation of legendary Afghan Ghazal singer Dr. Mohammad Sadiq Fitrat a.k.a. Nashenas, recorded at the Radio Afghanistan Studios and later released on singles by the Royal label in Iran. Nashenas would witness turbulent times as Afghanistan found itself caught up in the Cold War and the early '90s civil war until it became too dangerous to stay in the country. Through a friend in the U.N., he was able to seek asylum for himself and his family and take up residence in London, continuing to work as a musician and giving concerts globally. Most of Nashenas' recordings during this period were only made for broadcast, later surfacing on singles through the Royal label in Iran. 'Life Is A Heavy Burden' is compiled from these singles by Chris Menist and Mads Jensen.
