Music festival in Kabul, Afghanistan, first in 35 years

'Life During Wartime,' indeed: a music festival opened in Kabul, Afghanistan. The crowds were enthusiastic, as they seemed eager to throw off the pall of the long conflict.

From the article:
Another change was another step forward for Afghanistan, showcasing its modern musicians.

"I think Afghanistan can be a part of rock [music] in the world,” said Hamid of White Page.  He envisions a bright future, in which his band will “have a good contact with all the bands around the world and have a good concert [and] have at tour.  I hope to see that day before I die.”
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
