A rare and fascinating recording, made by veteran producer Verna Gillis in 1972, Afghanistan encapsulates the rich musical textures of this historic part of world. This region is an important link in the chain of cultures binding Europe and Asia together. The western and northern music is dominated by Near Eastern or Central Asian styles, while East Afghan music is heavily Hindu oriented. Afghan instruments are basically simple, made up of mainly strings and drums such as the tanbur, rebab, sarinda, delruba, zerbaghali, dhol, tula and dotar. A rare glimpse at this rich, ancient civilization, still in pre-Taliban years.
