Islamic scholar Sayd Nursi wrote: "As people need the Truth, there is also a need for pleasure. The sounds and voices that awaken in man sublime feelings and love for God are permitted, the same sounds that awaken orphan sadness, hopelessness and depression, selfishness or animal passion, are forbidden." Classical traditional Tajik music is based on the musical form called "shashmakam" and it is related to Uzbek music. As for the music of southern Tajikistan and the Pamirs, there is the most common musical genre – "Falak" ("Falak"), now this music is performed on holidays, weddings and other celebrations.

A musician, an outstanding musician, such as Davlatmand, is like a lens that focuses sunlight and thus ignites the hearts of listeners. The world of music is not only our conscious notes and rhythms, a huge layer of information comes to the listener with great speed through the world we often do not realize. This is called the transmission of tradition or nonverbal knowledge. Not many musicians in the world. playing ethnic music, were able to reach the level of such a uneversal language, understandable to everyone: Rabbi Shankar, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Jivan Gasporyan, Kudsi Erguner, Davlatmand Hollov. Davlatmand admirer of the poetry of Jelaluddin Rumi, Rumi poems have become songs that I sing from Damascus to Andizhan. It must be said that Islam in Tajikistan tends to mystical rather than Orthodox forms and this mysticism has long been woven into the fabric of national culture. Davlatmand is actually a Reviver and popularizer of poems and philosophy of Mevlana Rumi. There is a legend according to which the musical instrument rubob was invented by the poet and mystic Jalaluddin Rumi. Davlatmand says: "We people of the mountains, that's why we love Falak – music of the mountains. Falak is the language of our innermost feelings, the language we learned from the wind, the rocks and the blue skies. When I was young, I loved to sing when I was riding a horse or donkey in the field, carrying my father's lunch. I sang Falak and as I passed the mountains I heard the echo of the Budo mountains answering me." The dance of Falak consists of rotational movements, as in the dance of Mevlevi dervishes the dancer takes a conscious part in the rotation of the earth, planets, stars and the whole universe, it reflects the rotation of the celestial spheres, time and fate, it is a call when a person turns to the Heavens and receives a response as an echo. In the song "Drunken Vagabond", to the poems of Jelaluddin Rumi, the singer appeals to our souls:
Let's go, o Lovers!
Accept the madness! Accept the madness!
Like a moth, go to the heart of hearts
Face the fire! Face the fire!
Be a wanderer
Turn your house into ruins
With lovers of danger
Live together, in one place.
Become an intoxicated tramp!
