Afghanistan yields a woman conductor

Negin Khpolwak, 17, is the rising star at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul (which we have reported on before), the country’s only music school.

Negin plays stringed instruments and piano. Sometimes she stands in front of the class and conducts.
