Taliban rule: Musicians facing uncertain future in Afghanistan

Kabul: A large section of Afghanistan musicians are now saying they are facing the threat under the Taliban rule and they might not be able to continue with their profession.

The musicians said they are facing an uncertain future with music being their only way to earn an income.

“Our music is not something that will affect the people. If there is a wedding party in the village or somewhere else-- we do our music,” Jafar Khalili, a musician, told Tolo News.

According to the musicians, music was the only way of income but as they have abandoned it for over two months they are currently facing severe economic challenges.

Any country that doesn’t have culture and national music will never develop,” Asif Khalili, a musician, told the news portal.

The musicians have asked the new government to facilitate them with alternative job opportunities if music is not allowed anymore in Afghanistan.
