Burka-Band

While browsing blogs I came across this very funny-in my odd opinion- video on Cube´s blog and just had to regurgitate it over here:



In the Taliban regime music was forbidden, the possession of an instrument could be punished with death -that, and not wearing your Burka!- ... now here is a new Afghan women´s pop-music group. Enjoy!

laughing. and laughing and laughing!

i can't decide what part cracks me up the most: those lyrics, the choreography (especially the dancing fingers...) or that announcer telling us this group also sings Sinatra's "New York, New York" (at least i think that's what he was saying). too funny.

excellent (yet-disturbing) find, lovely Penguin! xox
