Today's Afghan music can be
roughly divided into traditional, modern and post-modern. Boundaries
between these different categories are not clear cut but roughly reflect
eras of pre Soviet, intra Soviet and post Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
The influences of neighboring cultures is reflected upon Afghan Music.
Since Music was banned by Taliban, most Afghan music during that period
was created in exile. Afghan artists continued to produce music
specially in the United States and Canada. We urge you to support
our Artists by purchasing their CDs and attending their concerts as they
reflect a culture that had nearly became extinct due to the international
political games. Here we present a directory of Afghan music sites
throughout the world. If you have any suggestions regarding adding any
sites, please send info to
