I love it here. I spent the morning in Kabul University Fine Arts Department, discussing the collaborations and workshops. I will probably be there every day, with the students and teachers. They are so kind, warm, friendly and grateful for my visit. I will do some guitar workshops, and also work with the traditional folk musicians, collaborating with them. I will invite some of them to perform with me, alongside the professional musicians.
Here is a collection of still and moving images from today. Bear in mind that all video and photos are taken from a moving car, we are not allowed to stop and take photos for security reasons.
