'Return of the Nightingales: the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, 2011’ film screening and discussion by Emeritus Professor John Baily.
The 30-minute documentary Return of the Nightingales is edited from video shot by Baily during his visit to ANIM. The school is hoping to recruit graduates from UK departments of music as instrumental teachers.
John Baily is Emeritus Professor of Ethnomusicology and Head of the Afghanistan Music Unit at Goldsmiths. His research has focused on the music of Afghanistan since the 1970s, both in Afghanistan and in the Afghan diaspora. In October 2011 he was sent to Kabul as a Cultural Ambassador by the Society for Music, Education and the Psychology of Music (based in the Institute of Education, University of London) to visit the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, a co-educational vocational music school founded recently by Dr Ahmad Sarmast, an Afghan-Australian musicologist.
