THE STORY:

The Sounds Central Festival [SCF] was the result of 5 years of local music scene empowerment, centred on an expats band White City, whose members rapidly discovered among some of their young fans an urge to start their own music projects. With little institutional backing up until the very event, the Kabul music scene kept away from any open political positioning.
Still, the different artists involved, regrouped in an artist collective called “Combat Communications”, were experimenting tag lines like “Combat Rock” and “Drop beats not bombs”, and developing a controversial message through their street art workshop and online videos.
SCF is Afghanistan & Central Asia's first regional rock music festival, as well as Afghanistan's first rock festival since Ahmad Zahir's show in 1975. It was held in Kabul on the 1st of October, with opening and closing nights in New York, September 15th to October 14th, 2011.
