Afghanistan rocks to its first music festival in 30 years
The sight of musicians tuning up their electric guitars, tapping away at their percussion instruments and programming their keyboards is something that many people in Afghanistan have not had the opportunity to see in their entire lifetime.
Musicians from the country, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and even Australia came together to deliver a wide-range of music that included electronica, indie, blues and even death metal.
In some respects it was still a distinctly traditional affair, with music put on hold in the afternoon to allow for prayers and alcohol being banned.
Travis Beard, one of the organisers of the festival, said: "The real, bottom-line aim of this festival is to ignite youth to be interested in modern music.
"What we are trying to do is to expose them to new kinds of music so they can get into those styles of music, and also just start playing music. Hopefully we'll get some kids saying: 'Hey this is really cool! Dad, can I get a drum set?' or 'Mum, can I get a guitar?'"
