For the second year running, Kabul is playing host to an alternative music festival - 'Sound Central'.
Local bands 'District Unknown' and 'Face-off Group' are playing to live audiences in the three-day arts and music celebration.
It's a reminder, say organisers, that Afghanistan isn't just about war.
