This review is from: The Kite Runner (Audio CD)
This is a truly masterly score which is appropriate for the film in every respect. The disc also features the famous Afghan singer Ahmad Zahir who was renowned in the 70s as a sort of Afghanistani Cat Stevens. I have read up on him since listening to this CD and he has had a sadly short life dying at just 33 years but leaving behind a wealth of music which has become a standard for singers in Afghanistan. I love those tracks on this CD and will be seeking out more of Ahmad Zahir music.
For anyone who has seen the film the music will be memorable anyway and for anyone who hasnt seen it GO NOW!!! It is the best of recent releases.
