Welcome to the all new White City blog. This is where the band will be sharing their touring, gigging, recording and general band exploits.
White City are a three-sometimes-four-piece rock band formed in Kabul, Afghanistan.
After playing in and around Kabul for five years, first as a cover band, then writing originals, the band decided to hit the road in 2011 and attempt to play every country ending in ‘stan.
Over the next six months they’ll play Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan, while catching it all on film.
They’ll share photos, videos, songs and their impressions of Central Asia from forgotten Soviet towns to the hustle and bustle of eastern bazaars.
The band are:
Andreas (drums/backing vox/keys) – A Swede, who grew up in communes in Sri Lanka, he’s been in and out of Afghanistan doing good since 2001
Ru (vox/bass) – A Brit, who’s spent the last two years in Kabul shooting videos and making music
Travka (guitar/sounds) – An Aussie, who first came to Afghanistan with the American invasion in 2001. He’s a film-maker, photographer and graffiti artist
Archie (guitar/sounds/backing vox) – Our French roving member and producer, most often found jamming late into the night with any musicians he can find, from cellists to rubab players.
