The music scene in Afghanistan is beginning to re-emerge.

It was banned under the Taliban, and even though male performers are exploring various genres in this new climate, it is still not an easy environment for a female rap artist.

Paradise is a rap singer, who focuses on women's rights and gender equality issues.

She has recently returned to her home country, after years of living abroad and is determined to succeed in Afghanistan's music industry.
