ARTFARM Presents: Heart Of Afghanistan

About this event

Heart of Afghanistan features four brilliant Afghan musicians unable to perform inside Afghanistan today, where the Taliban has banned all music. The group carries the flame of Afghanistan’s rich and complex musical heritage. Only recently reunited in the U.S., the ensemble will give a 360-degree view of Afghan culture through music, poetry, art and cultural heritage.

The Heart of Afghanistan project consists of Four Afghan musicians; Ahmad Fanoos on Vocals & Harmonium, and his two sons Elham on Piano and Mehran on Violin, with Hamid Habibzada on tabla. Together they will tell the story of Afghanistan from its pre-islamic Buddhist heritage through traditional Ghazals based on the Sufi inspired poetry of Rumi and the ‘Afghan Elvis’, pop icon Ahmad Zahir, of the 60s and 70s who took the music of Elvis Presley and translated it into Dari and performed it with a traditional instrument ensemble. The idea is to give a 360-degree view of Afghan culture through music, poetry, art and cultural heritage.
