The Sultans of Sufi-Rock

Junoon, a Pakistani rock band, is coming to The Meridian (1503 Chartres) on April 16th. Whether you speak Urdu or not, their reputation certainly precedes them as a very rocking live band with an extremely important message of peace.

The Houston Press seems to tote Junoon as a quasi-U2, which rings true looking at the awards they have collected regarding their work for peace between India and Pakistan and also their focus on American-Muslims after 9/11.

Should be an interesting and politically-charged show.
