Afghanistan National Institute of Music
EstablishedJune 20, 2010
DirectorDr. Ahmad Naser Sarmast

The Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) is a school of music in Kabul, Afghanistan. It was founded by the Afghan-Australian ethnomusicologist Dr. Ahmad Naser Sarmast, and offers a curriculum combining the tuition of both Afghan and Western music.[1][2] ANIM is a co-educational institute.[3][4]

Per an agreement between Sarmast and the Afghan Ministry of Education, the school accommodates both exceptionally talented students and underprivileged children.[1][5]

In 2013, ANIM's Afghan Youth Orchestra toured the United States, including performances at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center.[2][5] In 2014 a suicide bomb attack at a student concert killed an audience member and the bomber, and injured many more including Dr. Sarmast, who was nearly killed and lost some of his hearing.[6][7][8] In 2015, the first Afghan female conductor, 17-year-old Negin Khpolwak, held her first concert with an all-female ensemble.[9][10][11][12]

As of 2018 a third of the 250 students are female and the proportion is growing;[9] in 2019, Sarmast will take its all-female Zohra Orchestra on a European tour.[6]
