Playing for Peace!

This weekend, the people of Indian Kashmir are in for a treat as they get to witness a live performance by one of Pakistan’s top sufi rock bands.

Dubbed as one of South Asia’s most popular acts, Junoon is scheduled to perform this Sunday in an auditorium on the banks of the picturesque Dal Lake in what promises to be a mega event in the valley after decades.

The concert is being held to promote peace and good in the region that has seen its fair share of blood shed and chaos for the past 60 odd years and is being organized by the South Asia Foundation (SAF)  

This venture could not have come at better time when both the countries have been victims of multiple bomb blasts and the recent tension that has been brewing up along the LOC.

I am not sure as to who exactly is included in the Junoon camp. The wikipedia states that currently “Junoon consisted of two other members: Ali Azmat on vocals and Nusrat Hussain on keyboards”. I guess that’s the line up then.

More updates on this soon.

    Junoon includes Salman Ahmad, Ali Azmat and Brian O’Connell. However, the members have gone their own way with Ahmad and Azmat now releasing their own singles and performing solo. Read more at http://www.pakistanimusic.com/artistes/junoon.html.
