Sindh

Place

Sindh is one of the four provinces of Pakistan and historically home to the Sindhi people. It is also locally known as the "Mehran". The name "Sindh" is derived from the Sanskrit "Sindhu", a reference to the Indus River that passes almost through the middle of the entire province. This river was known to the ancient Iranians in Avestan as Hindu, in Sanskrit as Sindhu, to Assyrians as Sinda, to the Persians as Ab-e-sind, to the Greeks as Indos, to the Romans as Indus, to the Pashtuns as Abasind, to the Arabs as Al-Sind, to the Chinese as Sintow, and to the Javanese as Santri.

Music

"Sindh" is a musical album of E Muzeki.
