Junoon Jammin

Salman Ahmad, lead guitarist for the Pakistani rock group Junoon, will be performing this Friday night in New York City.

Ahmad, who is a doctor, speaks publicly and often about the need for peace in South Asia (“India and Pakistan constitute one fifth of humanity and the conflict that we have continued to harbor over the last half century has stunted the growth of people”).

The rocker is also a goodwill ambassador for the UN, and a spokesperson for UNAIDS (the joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS).

Tomorrow night, Ahmad will be performing selections from his latest solo album Infiniti. For ticketing and other information, visit the Asia Society, or call the box office directly at: (212) 517-ASIA.
