Safar - Music of Afghanistan


The EMC co-organised a journey through traditional Afghan music, where six Afghan masters of traditional Afghan music met three German jazz- and pop musicians to mix musical genres and transcend geographical, cultural and musical borders.

In this setting, three events took place in the City of Bonn: the journey started with a workshop for young people, followed by a discussion panel with cultural entrepreneurs and politicians in the Schumannhaus on the 9th of July 2012 and ended with a beautiful concert at the Deutsche Welle in Bonn at the 10th of July 2012.

"Safar - Afghanistan meets Germany" was a project organised by the Franz Liszt University (HfMW), the Afghan National Institute of Music (ANIM) as well as the European Music Council (EMC) and supported by the German Foreign Ministry (Auswärtiges Amt) and the City of Bonn.
