I, Mushtaq saznawaz,son of most popular muscian Ustad Ghulam Mohammad saznawazwant to convey to you my appreciations as you are highlighting the traditional music of kashmir (kashmiri sufiyana) through the internet. it gives me pleasure that you are doing such taskswhich are needed nowadays to keep this art alive.
Brother, since i am the professional artist of this music. i know its ups and downs.i also have knowledge about its history.it is really a good initiative from your goodself, but i am bound to inform you about some mistakes which are there in site.these include
1) you have not given the correct discription about tal system.
2) you have also mentioned in the site that Wazir joo was the maternaluncle of Ustad sidh joo,this statement is totally wrong.however the correct statement is that wazir joo was the father as well as guru of Ustad sidh joo and also ustad Ramzan joo was the brother of ustad sidh joo.
Moreever we have provided you some latest photographs & some audio clips of Ustad Ghulam mohammad saznawaz which you have not yet published on your site.
correct discription of talas is given below:-
Mukhammus (32 beats, 5 talas)
Neemdour (24 beats, 4 talas)
Neemsakeel (24 beats, 7 talas)
doroi (14 beats, 2 1\2 talas)
Hajiz (14 beats, 3 1\2 talas)
yaka (12 beats, 2 talas)
Doyaka (8 beats, 3 talas)
setal ( 12 beats, 3 talas)
chapndaz(6beats, 1 tal)
Ravani(5 beats, 1 tal)
hope that you shall make these mistakes correct as soon as possible.

Great website! Quite unique and well needed resource on Kashmiri heritage.

My idea of a good website is that its needs to have consistency in all aspects of its pages. Have the Navigation tool in a clean format on the left hand side, preferably in a box type format. I think it makes it a bit more straight forward rather than having a jpeg file rotating in the middle. Any links from the Homepage needs to have the same page format as well. Secondly I think the pictures need to be of a better resolution. The picture at the top of the homepage looks as if it is half done and doesn’t do justice to the quality of the work you have put into it. I also think that links to other websites that would have complimenting information would be a good idea as well. The website is very informative and the layout of text is well thought.

This is an excellent site that is improving all the time. Can I suggest that you have a short introduction on the home page to introduce visitors to the purpose of the site.

Nice website - clear navigation bar, good background images and appropriate sized-font.
However... I'd reduce the amount of scrolling text since it's not very good for usability - see http://www.usabilitynews.com/news/article1618.asp and http://safalra.com/web-design/usability/scrolling-text/ for details.
Also you might like to go and change the page title for each page - this appears in the blue title bar of each window and should reflect what's on the page - e.g. kasmirsufiana/comments should read "Comments page".
Just a couple of suggestions ;) You've obviously put a lot of effort into this and it shows!
