Music festival in Kabul, Afghanistan, first in 35 years
« on: October 03, 2011, 07:14:53 PM »
'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:
Quote
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.”
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
