Happy New Year or Naway Kal De Mubarak

Listen to the Tune of Peace in 2011

Naway Kal De Mubarak is how we welcome the New Year in Afghanistan, literally meaning "Have a blessed New Year."

The two string instruments at the right in the photo above are rubabs (or rababs), Afghanistan's oldest instrument.  Enjoy the video below by one of our late masters (cd available on the Smithsonian label).  We have three rubabs at our gallery, ranging around $300-$500.
