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 

emotive !
