    Heart of Afghanistan

    Date May 20, 2023 7:30pm Pricing $25 – $35

    The Heart of Afghanistan project consists of Four Afghan musicians; Ahmad Fanoos on Vocals & Harmonium, and his two sons Elham on Piano and Mehran on Violin, with Hamid Habibzada on tabla. Together they will tell the story of Afghanistan from its pre-islamic Buddhist heritage through traditional Ghazals based on the Sufi inspired poetry of Rumi and the ‘Afghan Elvis’, pop icon Ahmad Zahir, of the 60s and 70s who took the music of Elvis Presley and translated it into Dari and performed it with a traditional instrument ensemble. The idea is to give a 360-degree view of Afghan culture through music, poetry, art and cultural heritage.

    HEART OF AFGHANISTAN is an AMERICAN VOICES PRODUCTION
