Today was amazing, I spent the day at the Aga Khan Cultural Centre and i played with a 10 piece Afghan Orchestra. Musicians included Ustad Ghulam Hussain (Rubab) and an 87 year old Dilruba player. I have some great photos on Facebook, and videos which are still in the camera, i will get them up here tomorrow. The only disturbances were a couple of low flying US Helisopters. Somehow, worlds apart.
