Our « Central Asian Moods » mix on Radio is a Foreign Country

We were invited by Kenneth Routon from Radio is a Foreign Country to present a selection of our choice, so no surprise: We have chosen some tracks from Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

« Central Asian Moods: Divas’ Laments And Heartbroken Brave Men »

It was a pleasure for us to do it as it has reminded us the time we had our radio program here in Bordeaux, France.

Kenneth has chosen to use a picture from the Afghan movie « Biganaah » as an illustration, from which we used an acapella track by Sima Taraneh (go to afghanmagazine website to read an interesting article about this movie)

Hope you are all doing well and staying strong in these hard times.
