Afghanistan Youth Orchestra performing at Carnegie Hall

Wow, this is an incredibly moving story, though it’s sad to think how much the future of this organization is in doubt given the future of the country, with the Taliban likely to regain power following America’s exit in 2014 this kind of thing is likely to be banned and repressed again. :-(

I really want to go to this concert, looking into it.

Happened to notice a mention of this band in the New York Times this morning, & then their debut album (which came out today) was on the front page in Spotify, gave them a try and ended up largely loving this album, this song in particular. Check them out!
