Danger Music by Eddie Ayres
From the former ABC Classic FM classicist comes a remarkable story about the power of music and courage to be one’s self.
In 2014 Emma was spiralling into a deep depression, driven by anguish about her gender. She quit the radio, travelled, and applied for a position at Dr Sarmast’s renowned Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul, teaching cello to orphans and street kids.
Danger Music takes us through the bombing and chaos of Kabul, into the lives of the Afghan children who are transported by Bach, Abba, Beethoven and their own exhilarating Afghan music. Alongside these epic experiences, Emma determines to take the final steps to secure her own peace; she becomes the man always there inside – Eddie.
