Ustad Sarban?

My apologies for the long absence; big thanks to Pozole for holding it down in our absence. Let me join him in giving a big welcome to Smokestack! We’re all very excited to have him join us; he’s a brother to us, and he brings a deep, deep music collection.

A long trip means lots of new music to share! I had one afternoon in Germany, and I spent half of it hanging out and talking music in a little Afghan shop. There’s not much I can say about this one, except turn the bass up and blast it!


(Given the reverence with which the guy spoke about Ustad Sarban as one of the pillars of Afghan music, I’m gonna go ahead and assume that this CD doesn’t match the cover. I’m hoping the internet will send someone here who can tell us whose music this is.)
