A meaning in their music.


Zohra, an all-female orchestra from Afghanistan, played the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, recently. And not only that, the group put women's rights front and center.

"The Zohra ensemble is totally a positive image of Afghanistan to the world, and being one of the members of that and being one of the persons who's going to show that picture to the world ... It's like a dream," says Zarifa Adiba, a member of the orchestra.

The group hopes to continue to play and bring attention to the idea that Afghan women are capable of doing anything and having their voices heard.
