For much of Afghanistans history,people have used music and dance to express their religous faith.

Men and boys playing turk'mjangee, or "egg fighting" compete yo see who can smash hard-boiled eggs the hardest with out breaking them. They use tricks such as filling the shels with cement to strenghten their eggs.
Many Muslims artists don't decipt humans or animals in their work because, they belive that only Allah has the power to create living things.
The Taliban, a religous and political movement that controlled much of Afghanistan celebrate non-religous festivals, listen to music, dance, or play games and sports.
