Homayun Sakhi Performs on Rubâb

Homayun Sakhi is the outstanding Afghan rubâb player of his generation, a brilliant virtuoso endowed with a charismatic musical presence and personality. During Afghanistan's long years of armed conflict, when music was heavily controlled, censored, repressed, and, finally, totally banned, the classical rubâb style to which Homayun has devoted his career not only survived but reached new creative heights. Produced in collaboration with the Aga Khan Music Initiative, a program of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture.
