Afghanistan has some musical connection to Uzbekistan, as well as to Iran & India. This recording features instrumental art music. It includes both the more folk-based style of Herat and the Indian-influenced art music of Kabul. The rubab (which is the Afghani national instrument, adapted to become the Indian sarod) and the dotar (ubiquitous to Central Asia) are accompanied by tabla.
