    The Royal Academy is a partner when IMAGES Festival invites to "Artist talk" about music in conflict-ridden countries, Wednesday 4 September at 16-18 in A-house, Godsbanen, Aarhus.

    Among the panel members is Ahmad Sarmast, director of the National Institute of Music in Afghanistan, a country where music has been totally prohibited and might be it again. Sarmast believes that music can actually help to bring peace to the country.

    Among the participants are also Moslem Rahal, one of the world's finest musicians on the Syrian ney flute; he teaches on a daily basis at the music conservatory in Damascus but despite the extremely tense situation in Syria he has come to Denmark to participate in the IMAGES festival.
