Amir Shah Osmani, Reza Gholami, Hamid Reza and Mohammad Abbasi got to know each other in Austria.In 2017 they formed the group Musik Gegen Traurigkeit (= Music Against Sadness) and have delighted both Afghans and Austrians with their Afghan music. At the Nouruz party especially young Afghan refugees rushed to the dance floor to dance their hearts out to the tune of their lost home. Many thanks, guys, for your valuable contribution to the Nouruz celebrations!
Spring is comming! – the Afghan (and Persian) society celebrates this day (March 21) as the beginning of the year. The Afghan-Austrian Cultural Association Styria and the platform FIVESTONES have created a diverse program and invite the Afghan people of Styria and all interested Austrians to the NOURUZ celebration in the People’s House.
Today we were in the cinema. And wept. We have allowed ourselves to feel the pain that after each and every attack is inflicted on all those affected and their families and friends – and that can not be communicated in a sober report. It was a nice meeting also with the German directors as well as an Afghan actor and even those affected. True Warriors is really important.
