Literature and Arts as Critique and Resistance; Sufi Rock

For this week I created a visual overlay of Iranian and Pakistan artisitc free thinking. This week I encountered the intersection between art, music and Sufism in the Pakistani rock band Junoon and discovered numerous female Persian artists inspring free expression in Iran.

Junoon in Urdu literally means passion, which in my opinion is a synonym for art and expression.

The philosophy of the guitarist of Junoon Salman Ahmad of Lahore is not unlike that of Abbas Kowsari of Tehran.
