Kabul music academy hopes to revive Afghan musical traditions
Children in Kabul are receiving formal training in music at Afghanistan's first National Institute of Music.
Nearly half the students are orphans or street children for whom playing instruments provides a respite from decades of violence and poverty.
The founder of the academy hopes that one day his graduates will form the country's first national symphony orchestra.
