Zohra is een meisjesorkest uit Kabul, Afghanistan. Hoewel Afghanistan een rijke muziektraditie heeft, is het niet gebruikelijk voor meisjes om een muziekinstrument te bespelen. Tijdens het bewind van de Taliban van 1999-2001 was het verboden om muziek te spelen en te luisteren. Instrumenten werden verborgen en veel musici ontvluchtten het land. In die periode daalde de maatschappelijke positie van vrouwen dramatisch en werden hun rechten geschonden, meisjes mochten niet meer naar school en niet optreden.
De Taliban regeert het land niet meer, maar hun invloed is nog steeds aanwezig. Ook IS is aan het werven. Kabul is een bange stad geworden vanwege de vele bomaanvallen die onschuldige mensen doden.
Dr Armast Sarmast, de zoon van een Afghaanse componist en dirigent, werd opgeleid als musicoloog en trompettist. Hij is jarenlang vluchteling geweest. Nu is hij de oprichter en directeur van de ANIM muziek school in Kabul. Het is een school waar jongens en meisjes samen studeren en een paar uur per dag muziek spelen. Het is ook de school van het Zohra-orkest. Het bestaat uit 30 meiden, variërend van 12 tot 20 jaar. Ze spelen een mix van westerse klassieke en traditionele Afghaanse muziek. Sommige meisjes wonen thuis, maar veel wonen in een weeshuis. Niet alle zijn wezen maar komen uit een moeilijke gezinssituatie of uit regio's in het land waar ze geen toegang hebben tot onderwijs. Veel van hun familieleden weten niet dat ze muzikanten zijn, omdat het spelen van muziek voor vrouwen nog steeds door veel mensen niet geaccepteerd wordt. Door sommigen wordt muziek spelen gezien als een schande voor de familie.
