Afghan Star was watched by a third of the population of Afghanistan. Over 11 million people, in voting for their favourites, experienced a taste of democracy. Afghan Star is a small but significant unifying force for the country's diverse ethnic groups; a celebration of hope in the midst of adversity, 'the aim is to take the people's hand from weapons to music'.
