Kabul Dreams, the first rock band from Afghanistan, established itself in Kabul in 2008. 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.
Enjoy a performance by Kabul Dreams at Golden Gate on November 10!
