Rock the Casbah


Kabul's only rock band pushes 
Afghanistan's cultural frontiers

"The soundproofing in the home-made studio is not quite up to the job of muffling the din of Kabul's traffic, as a baby-faced 20-year-old called Suleman Qardash blasts out the catchy lyrics of Crack in the Radio, soon to feature on the first album by Afghanistan's only rock band.

With a dedicated following of expats and early signs of an appetite among young Afghans for English-language indie rock, Kabul Dreams are starting to show promise after less than a year together.

The band's existence is something of an oddity in a city where the diplomatic mood is increasingly turning to a negotiated settlement with the fundamentalist armed opposition."
