Burqa Band

I suppose that I do not have my finger on the Sharia pulse of Mohammedan pop culture. I only recently discovered the Burqa Band—a women’s band from Kabul who perform, fittingly (or, well, not so fittingly) in burqas. Here is a German news segment that features the band’s “Burqa Blue”:

Not bad—weird cultural juxtaposition, funny, subversive lyrics, and a quirky tune. Someone on N.R.O. called them a TaliBand. Maybe, but wouldn’t an indie band from Afghanistan be “cave rock”?
