Today’s Video: Junoon Documentary

Junoon is an internationally famous Pakistani rock band that has been at the forefront of advocating peace between countries and cultures around the world. “Music,” the lead singer declares, “is the most subversive force on the face of the Earth.” Their outspoken views on peace have resulted in near constant death threats and being banned from their own country, twice. But it has also gained them wildly enthusiastic fans, especially in their home country of Pakistan and neighboring country of India (in spite of the fact that India and Pakistan have a long history of violence and intense animosity towards one another). Along with playing all over the world, winning international music awards, and even coming to America to help raise money for victims of the 911 terrorist attack, they are also the first rock band to perform a concert in The United Nations General Assembly Hall.
