In May 2015, Krystle traveled to Afghanistan for the first time with her father. During her trip she experienced the reunion between her father and his family and friends after 42 years of separation. The land and people close to her father have all been impacted by war, loss, displacement, and passion.

In Crescent Moon, Krystle will use Afghan dance, experimental music, and singing to share stories and songs from her travels to Kabul, Kohistan and Mazar e sharif and to honor her family living in Afghanistan today and the things that have been lost in her homeland.
