Interview: Salman Ahmad - Sufi on a mission

KARACHI: Salman Ahmad is unstoppable. The talented guitarist released his much hyped memoir last year, titled Rock’n’Roll Jihad (RRJ), in which he narrates his ‘junoon’ (pun intended) for rock music, harmony and world peace. This year, the self-professed Sufi’s song “Natchoon Gi”, will be featured on the music compilation of the David Lynch Foundation led by legendary Hollywood producer David Lynch.

World music, Sufi rock superstars Junoon perform live in concert

Salman Ahmad, founder, lead guitarist and singer of the band Junoon, has been described as the “Bono of Asia” – but to world music lovers who have followed Ahmad’s social activist and Sufi rock career – Bono is called the “Salman Ahmad of Europe.”

The internationally acclaimed band, Junoon, will perform live in concert at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 18 at the Kimball Theatre, located at Merchant’s Square in Colonial Williamsburg.  The concert, part of William & Mary’s Asian Studies Initiative Silk Road Event Series, is free and open to the public.  Tickets are required for admission.

Junoon’s blend of Western rock and Sufi music has been a sensation throughout Europe and the Subcontinent, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide since 1990.  Tamara Sonn, Kenan professor of humanities and religious studies and co-coordinator of the event, said the concert is an opportunity for individuals unaware of world music to expand their perspectives.
