Afghanistan rock act Kabul Dreams have released a new music video for the track Fasl off their brand new EP both of which are streaming below. The band is described as “Afghanistan’s first rock band” so even though the music is not necessarily something that we would put up on Unite Asia, a band from Afghanistan deserves all our support, regardless of genre.
Read more about the band below:
“Kabul Dreams, the first Afghan rock band, established itself in 2008 in Kabul, Afghanistan. The band consists of Sulyman Qardash (lead singer and guitarist), Raby Adib (drummer) and Siddique Ahmad (bassist). Kabul Dreams has paved the way for a modest but growing rock scene in the country, which is rebuilding itself after decades of war. The band’s motivation to perform came from their own love for music, but also from a public hunger for a new life after war – a life that included new music and art.
Kabul Dreams released its first full length album in April, 2013, drawing inspiration from bands like the Sex Pistols, Nirvana and Oasis, among others. The album, “Plastic Words,” was mixed by Grammy winning producer Alan Sanderson, and recorded in Afghanistan.
In 2013, Kabul Dreams moved to the United States, where they are currently based in Oakland, California. The band recently finished recording its second album, which was recorded in both Oakland and San Diego.”
