Fête de la Musique: 21st June, 2021, @18H30
This Monday at 18H30, join us at the DISSIDENT club to celebrate Fête de la Musique with a night of traditional Afghan music on the rubab and tabla, with a performance from musicians and brothers Humayoun and Haroon Ibrahimi.
We will also hear from Humayoun and Haroon about their experiences as musicians in Afghanistan, where the Taliban brutally repressed and heavily censored any kind of music, and persecuted musicians, forcing many artists like Haroon and Humayoun to flee these dangerous circumstances to pursue their passions.
