Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 3, #26: Michel Gasco & Lachlan R. Dale – Afghan Music

Afghan Music In Exile: Mashhad 2022 is one of the most impactful albums I’ve heard this year. Produced by Michel Gasco and Lachlan R. Dale, it captures the incredible music and talent of classical Afghan artists living in exile. Every layer of the release is striking, but the music itself is utterly transcendent. I can’t stop listening to it. In connection with the album, Gasco and Dale have compiled this wonderful mix of Afghan music to expand on and further tell the story. 

Afghan Music In Exile: Mashhad 2022 is out now on Worlds Within Worlds.

Compiled by Michel Gasco & Lachlan R. Dale, with help from Qais Essar, Ustad Ghulam Nabi and Murtaza Damoon.
