NPR: From A Land Where Music Was Banned — To Carnegie Hall

This is amazing and inspirational! Afghanistan is rebuilding in so many ways, from teaching girls to this.
 

In Afghanistan, there was no sound of music when the Taliban ruled from 1996 to 2001. The Islamist militants destroyed music CDs and instruments and even jailed musicians.

 

Today, there are music schools and young Afghans playing in public. And, this weekend, 48 Afghan boys and girls are traveling to the U.S. to perform at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center.
