Burqa Band

An Afghan all-girl band is a club-hit in Germany:

"You give me all your love, you give me all your kisses, and then you touch my burqa, and don't know who it is..." the lead singer moans in halting but determined English. "Burqa, burqa bluuueee" they sing, in ironic lyrics that still manage to tell the tale of how Afghan women were oppressed by the former Taliban regime.

Yahoo! News runs a photo of a burqa-clad guitarist.
