Music and dance at the court in Kabul

Music and dance at the court in Kabul


Reimagining classical forms

From the late 19th century to the early 20th century the rulers in Kabul (known as Amirs) were great music lovers and patrons of music. The lecture-recital explores the changing role of the Lareh repertoire under the changing Amirs of the period. The concert forms part of a week-long residency for Ensemble Zohra, the first-ever all female orchestra of Afghanistan.
