Traditional music from Afghanistan

The rich treasures of Afghanistan’s music are currently under existential threat. The Safar Ensemble unites musicians in exile and makes this music resound in European concert halls, demonstrating that Afghan music has its very own character, even if it has been influenced by Persian, Indian and Central Asian music cultures. On May 24, the Safar Ensemble makes its Philharmonie debut, showing that a microphone can also be a weapon and that in such cases, cultural institutions have the responsibility of turning their stages into megaphones. It is essential to allow a repertoire threatened with annihilation to be heard, letting the music unfold where people allow it to be heard, and felt.
