Music scene blossoms in former Taliban stronghold

Help

All forms of music were banned from social gatherings, TV, and radio while the Taliban were in power in Afghanistan from the mid-90's until 2001.

But in the post-Taliban years, music and songs are enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

In Kandahar the Benjo in particular is becoming one of the more popular instruments with music-lovers again.
