Gratitude from Salman Ahmad for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
 


Salman Ahmad is touched by Brangelina’s million-dollar gesture and hopes that AR Rahman would respond positively to his request of performing at the UN concert.

Musician and UN Good will Ambassador Salman Ahmad was in for a surprise when his appeal to raise funds for the three million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Pakistan was met with a $1million response by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Driven by the Junoon to work for his country, the musician is all set to put together a UN concert by roping in Hollywood, popular musicians across the globe, and yes, the double Oscar winner, AR Rahman as well. Salman, who is hoping for a positive response from the wizard of Indian music, tells CT that making his presence felt at the UN General Assembly hall will only make Rahman a bigger star. [more...]

Salman Ahmad on Michael Jackson's death

I was deeply saddened by the news of Michael Jackson's death yesterday.

Being a rock guitar player growing up during the era of Thriller , My first zen moment with Micheal Jackson happened when he released "Beat it" (Thriller). It included a searing double tapping guitar solo from my eighties heavy metal guitar hero Eddie Van Halen .For the very first time I heard a cultural and musical fusion between African-American dance pop and White heavy metal music. it was totaly addictive and infectious. No longer was it uncool for rockers to listen to Michael Jackson. [more...]

India's Outlook on Junoon in Kashmir!

Kashmir Cantata

Junoon, the soft-rocking dervishes from Pakistan, came as a rare musical interlude

Namrata Joshi
Outlook India


Despite staying in the same hotel, it proved hard to pin down Salman Ahmed-the lead singer and guitarist of the Pakistani Sufi rock group Junoon-for an interview. Faced with opposition from hardliners against his concert, he preferred to lie low, doing riyaaz at the crack of dawn by the peaceful expanse of Dal Lake, instead of talking to the media. But after the success of the concert, it was quite another story-Salman had become an instant celebrity, a bigger presence in the Kashmir capital than the visiting president of India. When our turn with him finally came at 2.30 am, you could hear the joy in his voice, even at that unearthly hour. [more...]
