about

With this album I want to express my affection to Afghanistan, especially to Afghan people. Some tracks of the album are titled with some Pashtun words, which has been taken from the Pashtunwali (Afghanyat) and which are ethical codes, like Nanawatai, Badal and Melmastya. These three first laws (there are eleven) of the Afghanyat are the most important. However you will never understand its full meaning as intended. You cannot understand fully the code of ethics of Pashtunwali unless you’ve personally lived it from childhood.
In the track description you will find more information.

The Album is deeply dedicated to the Afghan People, who gave me so much great hospitality and affection.
