Afghani Dance Logari
While the Taliban were in power no one in Afghanistan was allowed to dance, neither men nor women, neither in public nor in private. This had not always been the case. Women didn't dance in public but in private they enjoyed singing and dancing. Dancing boys performed for the eyes of men, in the Chaikhana (tea house) as well as at festivals and weddings. Very famous were the dancers from the Logar Valley south of Kabul. These Pashtun dancers managed to be both shy and coquettish and could freeze with bravado at the dramatic stops in the 7/8 music.
