During the past decade the increase of radio stations,
television channels and internet coverage in Afghanistan has helped
to bring remarkable developments in the field of music, at one time banned
by the enemies of peace. New singers appeared and expert singers were provided
the opportunity to train youth in music.
Today, most of Afghan singers want to
bring a message of peace with their songs. This issue plays a good
role in the society and impacts the public to love each other and respect each
prospectives. Among the Afghan singers Farhad
Nangarhari, Naghma, Seeta
more are most known because of their songs with a message for the peace. Almost
all of their songs are about their homeland and peace. They turned their dreams
of singing into reality which is a peaceful atmosphere for all.
The peace songs have big impact on both literate and
illiterate people of the country, because of their soft message, it is easy for
the listener to get it. Besides, singers also feel proud to sing and praise the
beauty of their beloved country. Singers can invite people to peace and tell
them about the harms and outcomes of the war. They can improve peace and
security by their messages in music.
Our original music is about presenting our
culture. It is due to the efforts of our media that original Afghan
music is reviving now. I urge the media in Afghanistan to continue their efforts
to improve Afghan music.
