Music of Afghanistan

Music of Afghanistan presents songs and dances that feature instruments such as the rubab (lute), saranda (bowed instrument similar to violin and lute), and tabla drums. The liner notes to this 1961 recording describe the rich folklore that is part of Afghanistan’s heritage: in addition to music and dance, oral tradition about legendary heroes and great events. The ten tracks, which were recorded by Radio Kabul, include solos, instrumental duets, and a piece by the Afghan National Orchestra.
