Junoons Salman touring USA for earthquake victims
Salman Ahmad performed at the Princeton University Chapel in New Jersey this past thursday. The chapel which could have easily seated 500 people, but the pakistani students of one of the best universities in the world did such a poor job of spreading with word around , that less than 50 people attended. They collected around $ 3000 dollars which I personally think is chips..
The performance was great and everyone enjoyed it . He sang some cool songs like with or without u .. although i dont know if Bono would have been impressed with Salmans voice !
The sound of all the instruments inside the chapel was amazing.. After the performance Salman spent a lot of time with all the fans and took a picture with just about everyone in the crowd. He also gave out free CDs of his new album which was cool.
Before the concert , I went in early to make sure I get a good spot. There was a girl and a lady sitting right in front of me.Both of them were white.. the woman was some faculty member at princeton and the girl was a freshman. So while we were waiting for the concert to start , I overheard them talking..
the lady goes. “Do you know the band who is performing”
girl ..” yes , its a Rock band from pakistan.. i just saw a documentary on them’
lady.. ” tell me about it ”
girl…” well they are like the first rock band in their country.. and their country is mostly against music.. u know the islamic fundamentalists…. and they actually want to BAN music.. and they showed in the documentary how this band goes around all the places telling that there is nothing wrong with music.. ”
lady … ” ohhh.. i know those muslim countries.. so is there a girl in the band… ”
girl.. ” uhhh.. i dont remember.. ”
right after this salman walked in, sat down and performed Sayoneeeeeeee..and I could see both the girl and the lady’s head swing with the tune….
90 % .. white people.. even the most cultured and educated like the ones who TEACH at Princeton.. so called best univ in the world.. know JACK about anything related to the international scene :P
