Always on the lookout for unusual gigs, I came across an evening of music from Afghanistan. The concert is preceded (one day earlier) by a lecture and recital introduced by Nigel Osborne. This is the sort of thing which might interest pupils keen on exploring a little outside the Western tradition. Both events are part of Reel Afghanistan, a festival of music, film art taking place in Edinburgh between 21 Feb and 8 Mar (although some of the exhibitions run a little longer). You can see a full programme here.
