From kids to elders in Kashmir, everyone has his songs by heart. Known as the “Kashmiri AR Rehman”, Jaan Nissar Lone continues to inspire the youth and strives to ignite the spark of music in the hearts of millions so that there remains no space for conflict ever again.

The pain of the Kashmiri commoners trapped in misery with no fault of theirs stings him somewhere and he longs to be the voice of their silent agony through his music. Jaan Nissar Lone stresses that in a state where violence and cold war defines the relationship of Kashmir with the rest of India, divine music could be instrumental in healing and resolving the bitterness.

Jaan Nissar Lone believes that if the youth of Kashmir chooses music or any form of art over guns and violence, Kashmir would be a peaceful place, forever! He thinks Music alone could cross barriers and unite the world, connecting people and their sentiments.

He has composed music for numerous films such as Pranaam, Half Widow, J.D, 18.11, and Shudra the Rising.

Interestingly enough, despite being such a popular figure in the music industry he feels, “If no one in your locality knows you or your work, you have done nothing, no matter how big of a star you are. Society has to accept you and relate to your work.” ‘Peer Myanio’ was his first Kashmiri song. Possessing a passion for photography and videography, he has filmed the entire video of Peer Myanio by himself. He also produced Khodaya, Harmukh Bartal, and Maenziraat. Maenziraat has the distinction of being the first original dance number of Kashmir.

Reiterating the indispensable role that music has in our lives, Lone wants to start an institution in collaboration with Trinity College of London and Toronto to nurture music learning among the children of the age group of 4 to 5 years.
