Do Akhbaris eat only halal meat and forbid music?

Salam they are similar to Usulis in Halal meat & eating meat that has been cooked by jew and christian which in case of music Akhbari Scholars are more radical than Usulis about music nevertheless there are many Zakirs (religious Singers) between Akhbaris in Pakistan & India which they are very popular between people who follow Akhbaris.

Those are basically ghulat who hide behind the Akhbari name. In reality they don't have anything to do with the original Akhbari school.

Salam , I have not been aware  about existance of  Akhbaris in south of Iran until know anyway I have not seen radiclism & Ghulat between remaining Akhbaris in south of iran.

Today the only places in Iran where Akhbarism has considerable proponents are parts of the Khuzestan province, particularly Khorramshahr and Abadan.

Geographical Distribution

In 11th/17th through 13th/19th centuries, Akhbarism was popular in religious cities of Iran and Iraq, as well as in Bahrain and India. At this time, much of the western parts of Qazvin was the center of Akhbaris who were pupils and followers of Mulla Khalil al-Qazwini (d. 1089/1678-1679). This is why the city was an important center for the proponents of Akhbarism. After the campaigns against Akhbarism and the dominance of Usulism, their influence in this city was undermined.

Today the only places in Iran where Akhbarism has considerable proponents are parts of the Khuzestan province, particularly Khorramshahr and Abadan.

The relationship between Sheikhieh and Akhbari
There are various opinions about the relationship between Sheikhians and Akhbarians. Although the Sheikhians themselves deny any connection to the Akhbaris, their opponents believe in a kind of deep connection between the Sheikhis and the Akhbaris and believe that the emergence of the Sheikhiyya sect has been influenced by the Akhbari ideology. [43] Some also believe that the Sheikhis were not completely followers of the Ususlis  and not entirely followers of the Akhbaris, but that their profession was a path between the Usulis and the Akhbaris.

There are two major theological and doctrinal tendencies among Pakistani Imami Shiites:

A trend called "Sheikhieh" or "Mawaliyah" which is attributed to Sheikh Ahmad Ehsaei and Seyyed Kazem Rashti.
The so-called "special Shiite" «شیعیت خاص» or "Muwahidin " «موحدین» tendency, which opposes the Sheikhite tendencies and is a kind of representative of the Shiite Ususli school and is considered a Shiite reformer and is supported by the seminarians and academics. [30]

A distinction must be made between the classical Akhbari school that existed (hundreds of years ago) and the modern movement sharing the same name (i.e. Akhbaris). Shaykhis are not ghulat and Shaykhism was an Usuli offshoot. Shaykh Ahmed had some unique ideas that led certain scholars to call him a heretic. The Bábi Faith sprung forth from Shaykhism and the Baháʼí Faith morphed out of Bábism. Both the later two left the fold of Islam due to ghuluww tendencies. Akhbarism remains the dominant school in Bahrain and pockets of Akhbari influence still exist throughout Shi'i regions in Iraq, Pakistan etc.

As far as fiqh goes they're more-or-less like other Twelvers, the difference is only in regard to some speculative theories regarding Imam Mahdi's whereabouts or mystical interpretation of this Qur'anic verse or hidden symbolism or this-or-that trope or intuitive knowledge of x or y etc....
