Aryana Sayeed is a superstar in Afghanistan. Singing in Pashto and Dari dialects, her voice not only gives Afghani folkloric music a modern twist, but also carries the aspirations of women seeking empowerment in a country that was once under Taliban rule. As a judge on the popular TV talent shows “The Voice of Afghanistan” and “Afghan Star”, she’s been targeted by Islamist hardliners, and even had a bounty on her head for not wearing a veil.
Aryana Sayeed joins France 24’s Mariam Saab on ‘Encore’ ahead of her first ever concert in Paris.
