In the unlit rooms of the bullet-pocked Kabul Secondary School of Fine Arts, music students persist with broken instruments, no books, no syllabus and no specialist teachers. After 30 years of conflict and a loss of musical rights during the Taliban regime, the musical culture of Afghanistan has been devastated. Despite all the rebuilding in the country, little has been done for music. In the midst of this despair, Melbourne-based Afghan musicologist Dr Ahmad Sarmast returns to Kabul determined to create the first National Music Institute of Afghanistan.
