When Combat Comms and four rock bands of Afghanistan–Morcha, Kabul Dreams, District Unknown, and White Page–rallied to create the Sound Central Festival in Kabul in 2011, Humanitarian Bazaar (then under our first project, HELO Magazine) joined as co-producer. We created the international advisory board, produced two concert press events in New York, brought Acrassicauda (Iraq) and Brian Viglione (USA) to provide virtual training to the bands, and produced media with District Unknown and White Page in Kabul. The festival continued through 2011-2013. See
