Afghanistan's Rock Music Festival
Remember our previous feature about 'Sound Central'
, Afghanistans first rock music festival in over thirty years? Well we've got an update for you. Al Jazeera
followed the proceedings and have given us a glimpse of what went down at this historic event.
Hundreds of young Afghans attended the festival in the centre of Kabul. Shrouded in secrecy to avoid attacks, Sound Central showcased local Afghan bands alongside fellow musicians from Iran, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and even Australia. Check out the Zein Basravi's report below.
