Afghan Jazz Project (AJP) performs a unique musical blend
which combines elements of American jazz music and the traditional
music of Afghanistan. The music is performed on both familiar
Western instruments (e.g. guitar, bass and drum set) and more exotic
ones such as the 20-stringed Afghan rubab (roo-bob) and dutar (doo-tar).
The AJP combines composition and improvisation in a way that is uniquely
American while drawing much inspiration from the sounds and
musical styles of Afghanistan. The AJP is exciting, engaging, entertaining and
