Standing Ovations: All-Female Orchestra from Afghanistan Conquers the Old World

1050613481

From Sputnik News.

The idea of an all-female ensemble came from female students of the country’s National Institute of Music (ANIM) in Kabul. The founder of the orchestra, Naser Sarmast Mohammad, is an Afghan musicologist and a teacher at the institute. She initially thought of maybe a four-or-five member ensemble, but there was so much interest that it quickly evolved into the 30-woman orchestra.

The ladies chose the name Zohra for the first all-female orchestra from Afghanistan after a music goddess in Persian literature.

In mid-January, the ensemble was invited to the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort Davos to perform for the Annual Meeting Closing Concert.
Since then, the orchestra has had a European tour, winning the hearts of the Europeans and revealing another side of their country.
