Dr. Abdul Haque Chang received the Dr. N. A. Baloch Award of Excellence on April 6, 2019, for his research on Sindh.
Dr. Chang is a key emerging scholar of contemporary Sindh whose work in progress is highly anticipated. Dr. Chang’s research on the Sufi musical tradition of Shah Jo Raag provides a new dimension on musical ethnography and is the first longitudinal ethnographic work extended over a period of twenty years. This project will set new trends in the anthropology of Pakistan. As a part of the community of traditional Sufi musicians, Dr. Chang’s research focuses on the making of this devotional Sindhi music transmitted orally by the families of hereditary musicians since 1743.
