KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - SEPTEMBER 26: American cellist and music teacher Robin Ryczek from Boston, Massachusetts instructs Fekiria,14, at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music September 26, 2010 in Kabul, Afghanistan. Afghanistan's first and only music high school opened in June and now has 150 student, including 27 girls. From 1996 to 2001 the Taliban regime banned all music, forcing many musicians to put away their instruments or go into exile. The school's aim is to revive long-neglected musical traditions using both Afghan and foreign instructors. 25 students were recruited from the war-ravaged country's large number of orphans and street children. The program is being supported by donor governments, international music colleges and instrument suppliers. (Photo by Paula Bronstein/Getty Images) less
