"Dokhtar Afghan" by Valy (Dari)

This song is by the Persian pop singer Valy, who is ethnically Afghan. "Dokhtar Afghan" which means "Afghan girl" in Dari, a dialect of Farsi (sometimes called Old Persian) spoken in Afghanistan today. I was introduced to this song by a friend in college whose parents were from Afghanistan. I love the beat and rhythm of this track and the sounds of the Dari language. It really is a beautiful language.

@cityofkyle this was lovely. If I had to guess based on the title of the song I think he's singing about the beauty of Afghan girls... it's too bad that country is no longer what it used to be
A very good friend of mine here in New York is of Afghan descent. If I show this to him he will flip over my knowing it.
