Afghan Orchestra to perform in the US

afghan orchestraStudents of the Afghan orchestra from the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) are invited to perform in venues of three US states including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.

“The performing students are remarkably busy getting ready with their Afghan and foreign teachers to stand out and show the US citizens the other face of Afghanistan which is a far cry from war and violence,” Tolo News quotes ANIM director Nasser Sarmast.

The orchestra consists of traditional Afghan music elements such as Qichak, Rubab, and Danbura.

The classic song “Da Ze Monj Zeba Watan” will be one of the pieces performed.

One of the school’s pianists who is ten years old and has no father told TOLOnews that she wants to perform to pass to Americans a message of peace, that Afghanistan seeks peace and is tired of war.
