Isn’t this a wonderful world?


Isn’t this a wonderful world?

: While tending the inspiring new Global Voices harvest of blogs around the world, Rebecca MacKinnon comes across something remarkable that seems to be legit: An all-girl Afghan band called the Burka Band. Listen to their single, Burka Blue.

: LATER: Jeff Hess was, like me, dubious at first but then saw all the press the Burka Band has gotten in Europe and so he says:

It wasnít the Peacemaker nor the Trident that brought down the Soviet Union, it was Coca Cola and Leviís. Will Rock ëní Roll topple the mullahs? Could be.

Better yet, a girl band.
