Bio: This album presents Afghan music and traditions—almost lost—preserved in invaluable field recordings made in Kabul in 1950 and 1970 by ethnomusicologist Deben Bhattacharya. Nomad tribal dances, love songs, battle tunes… are played on authentic instruments, such as ghichak (fiddle), zeir baghali (goblet drum), surnai (shawm), dholak (double headed drum), rabab (lute) and more. Extensive information in four languages.
