about

Twenty years of war and the Taliban’s systematic repression have taken an incalculable toll on Afghanistan’s instrumental music world. With a little searching, you might be able to find historical field recordings from thirty years ago, or current synthesizer pop music made in the Afghan diaspora. But as the world music scene continues to explode around the globe, the vitality and immediacy of traditional Afghan artists making traditional Afghan music for our times has been conspicuously absent.

Quraishi‘s music is a rare and vital link between the rich tradition of classical Afghan court music, the golden years of Afghan radio, NYC’s diverse immigrant culture, and the future of Afghanistan’s musical identity.
