Vocalist, Pakistan

Mohsin Abbas is a vocalist and harmonium player from Gujranwala, Punjab. From a long line of vocalists in his family, Mohsin has gained his incredibly powerful and expressive vocal technique from his training with Ustad Fida Hussain, which started at a young age. When asked what he would do with this opportunity after the program has ended, Mohsin responds, “I want to carry on my ancestral profession and enhance their work…Music provides tranquility to the soul. If a man is at calm then all his doings [can] be done well.”
