AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Eddie Ayres has a lifetime of musical experience—from learning the viola as a child in England and playing with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, to landing in Australia to present an extremely successful ABC Classic FM radio show. But all of this time Eddie was Emma. In 2014 Emma was spiralling into depression, driven by anguish about her gender. She quit the radio and decided on a surprising path to salvation. Emma applied for a position at Dr Sarmast's renowned Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul, teaching cello to orphans and street kids. In Danger Music, Eddie takes us through the 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.'
