In Afghanistan you risk your life to sing. After thirty years of war and five years of Taliban rule, pop culture is beginning to resurface. Millions have been tuning in to Tolo TV's wildly popular, American Idol-style series Afghan Star, where people compete for a cash prize and record deal. The contest is open to everyone despite gender, ethnicity or age. And when viewers vote for their favorites via cell phone, it is, for many, their first encounter with the democratic process.
