Every year, between November and April, when the temperature is chilly, the Buzkashi season opens in Tajikistan. Buzkashi – from the Persian words goat (“buz”) and drag (“kashi  ») – has been played in Central Asia for centuries and consists of horse riders – chapandaz – dragging a dead goat around markers across a huge field surrounded by hills. Every weekend, multiple events are taking place all over this mountainous country, and offer unexpected entertainment.

This is an ongoing project.
