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.
