Balochistan (بلوچستان) is a UNPO member nation that lies along the division between the Middle East and South Asia. It is currently divided between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan.



The area was first settled c. 7000-6000 BCE by the Dravidian ancestors of the modern day Brahui. The ruins of the Neolithic Mehghar reveal it to be one of the earliest sites with evidence of farming and herding in South Asia.



From the first to third centuries, AD, the area was ruled by Indo-Scythian or Indo-Parthian kings, the Pāratarājas. During the Arab Conquest in the 700s, Islam and Arabic culture arrived. In the 1000s, fleeing the Seljuk Turks, and in the 1200s, fleeing the Khagan of the Mongol Empire, numerous Aryan tribes arrived. All found the harsh, arid and mountainous ideally isolated and today, Baloch people's DNA reveals a rich genetic mix with varying degrees of Arab, Aryan, Dravidian, Greek, Kurdish and Turk ancestry.

 

Until the arrival of the British and later the discovery of vast reserves of natural gas, the Balochi were left relatively alone to develop their own rich, distinct culture. For almost all important occasions (with funerals a notable exception) music and dancing play a major part. Well known Balochi performers include:


Abdullah Sana


Arif Baloch


Khair Jan Baqri


Khalil Sohrabi


Saleem Amin

 

 
Shahjan Dawoodi



When England carved up their former empire, they deliberately dived the strategically important Balochistan between three regions. Today, Iran and Pakistan, in particular, exploit the region for its natural resources but the Balochi see little benefit.
