Discostan w/ N.R. Safi of Naujawanan Baidar

Los Angeles, 03.07.19

Today on Radio Discostan, a guest mix from N.R. Safi of the amazing Afghan psych and Pashtun noise band, Naujawanan Baidar. A selection of popular and traditional Afghan music mostly focused on beloved songs copied from his grandfather's cassette collection, much of it on Kabul Music House, hand-dubbed mixtapes and radio recordings, from the 70s-80s. The sounds here run from traditional instrumental dance music to oddly cross-eyed disco folk to legendary crooners like Nashenas and Ahmad Zahir, plus an Uzbek cover of an Afghan classic – basically little bits and pieces of Naujawanan Baidar's musical DNA.
