Dust of Uruzgan by Fred Smith

Fred Smith is an Australian diplomat and songwriter who has developed, in cooperation with Regional Arts Victoria, a theatre show and music album called Dust of Uruzgan.

Between 2009-2013, Smith worked on and off for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade alongside Australian troops in Uruzgan province, Southern Afghanistan. While his main role was building relationships with provincial government figures and tribal leaders in the province, Smith also wrote an album of songs during his time there.
