Indie rock – but not from Britain or America.
This is music from Afghanistan, of a kind seldom heard before, but now produced by a trio of young men.
The band, Kabul Dreams, is made up of vocalist Sulaymon Qardash, bass player Siddique Ahmad and drummer Mujtaba Habibi, who claim to be the country’s first and only rock and roll group.
“One year ago in December we decided to create this band and since it was happening in Kabul, we thought Kabul Dreams is a good name,” says the 19-year-old vocalist, who bears a distinct resemblance to Liam Gallagher of the British band Oasis.
“It’s a real dream to play indie rock music in Afghanistan.”
