Samir’s Tabla and Afghani Rabab


We start our week of Afghani musical adventures with a video featuring Samir Chatterjee, the very patient producer of All Around This World: South and Central Asia. Samir, who splits his time between India and the United States, has taught music around the world, including Afghanistan, where he helped revive musical traditions that decades of Taliban oppression had nearly destroyed. Here he shares the stage with Quraishi who plays the Afghani rubab. (sometimes “rabab.”)
