It was formed in 1990 by guitarist, songwriter and medical doctor Salman Ahmad. Q magazine calls them “One of the biggest bands in the world”. Billboard says Junoon is the Subcontinent’s “biggest crossover successes after the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan”. They sing mostly in the language of Urdu, in a style blending Western hard rock with Sindhi and Punjabi folk and Qawwali. Junoon, in effect, had to create an audience for rock music in Pakistan. “The band’s appeal reaches beyond the Westernised elite”, says Newsweek. The New York Times called Junoon as ” the U2 of Pakistan”. In a preview to Junoon’s performance at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, the LA Times says Junoon’s “ability to captivate audiences” is “inspiring Beatles-like reactions”.
