Do you remember the Hindi song `Dafli Wale Dafli Baja` from the Bollywood movie `Sargam`? Well, got to know something important about `Dafli`. Also called Daf, this instrument emerged in the days of Sassanid Iran. It is believed that during ancient times Kurdish women in Middle East used to play this instrument.

Popular music means any music that appeal to popular tastes. Compared to other music, this sort of music has a wider appeal.
