Melodious Afghani Voice with Armpit Accompaniment
My husband was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011-12. While there, a fellow soldier was out on his rounds and met up with a villager.
I'm unclear how the villager started singing - maybe he was well-known in the area? - however, I've never heard anything like it.
Trust me, you'll find yourself wanting to practice the armpit instrument, too!
I posted this because while there are horrible wars going on and much of the news we hear is sad or angering, there are still things in this world that can cause momentary lightness and distraction. Of which, I think this fits the bill quite well.
My previous posts were heavy and often weighed on my heart, But, I also like silly humor and things that make me smile.... it's important to keep all the emotions well-rounded. :)
