Sound Central Festival 2011

Uploaded on Sunday 9 September 2012


In 2011, Sound Central Festival was Afghanistan & Central Asia's first regional alternative music festival since Ahmad Zahir's shows in 1975. Last year’s festival was realized in Kabul on the 1st of October, with opening and closing nights in New York, September 15th to October 14th, 2011. Argus Productions created a global buzz with its vision, to build solidarity in a non-partisan, non political but simply musical way.
The festival was held at Bar-Bur Gardens over 7 hours. 8 local and International music groups played to over 500 Afghan; men, women, youth, adults and even a few elderly citizens.
The festival was joined by musicians from all over Central Asia and beyond: 2011 Performers. In Kabul we also hosted workshops by numerous international musicians including: Brian Viglione of The Dresden Dolls (USA) and Acrassicauda (Iraq). We also hosted 5 days of pre-festival side shows for the Afghan youth in a local venue.
