Attan began as a folk dance conducted by Afghans in the time of war or during wedding or other celebrations. During King Yama's time Attan was performed before going to a war because it used to give the army the confidence that they could win the battle. It is now considered the national dance of Afghanistan. It is usually performed with a Dhol, which is a double-headed barrel drum. Women often wear traditional sequin afghan dress. The men wear the traditional outfits such as the pakool and whaskat.
