A month ago, we found some pictures of Atif & Co. jamming with the American Legendary Band “Guns’n’roses”. This was quite shocking yet amusing news for many Pakistani Fans. Everybody knew about Atif’s popularity, but no one could imagine about his collaboration with Guns’n’roses. For this joint project, Mr. Todd Shea should be credited the most. First, Let’s take a look at who Todd Shea is and how he was impressed with Atif Aslam’s music which resulted in the inclusion of him in the American Project.

Who Is Todd Shea?

Basically, Todd Shea is an American Musician & Social Activist, who first came to Pakistan in 2005, to help the earthquake victims. Since then, he has been exploring & loving Pakistan and now he wants to show the world that Pakistan is not what is being portrayed in the West or shown in the Media. It has far most good things and here people are caring & loving. He was also impressed with the Music of Pakistan & also wished to introduce Pakistani Music tunes with his country fellows.

Atif Aslam tells the background story of “Peace Through Music Project”

While talking to a local magazine correspondent, Atif tells the background  story that he got the very first call from Todd Shea in which Todd told him about how & when he started listening to Atif’s tracks. Todd listened to his song while driving, and doing relief work somewhere in Northern Areas of Pakistan. He loved his voice & instantly became his fan and started researching about him and then Todd found out that Atif is quite popular among Pakistanis.

On a question, which song of yours impressed him so much that in return he decided you to invite America & do project? Atif’s answer was, “He didn’t point out any single song, but I guess he was impressed with “Aadat” & “Doorie”.

Atif further adds up, “When Todd told me about the project, I instantly accepted this offer. Later on, he introduced me with most famous Director Lanny Cordola, then I was invited to America where a song was recorded in which Matt Sorum, Gilby Clarke & my band members Sarmad Ghaffoor & Sameer Shani was included”

After reading this, one may get the idea about the role of Todd Shea, in organizing such a great project that will fill the gap between the two countries — United States & Pakistan.  This project will also help the vulnerable children in developing nations, and help create a better, safer world for all the Humanity.

Pakistan American Peace Through Music Project

Background:

Mention Pakistan today and what comes to the minds of most Americans is terrorism, poverty, and hopelessness. That’s all they see in the news. But Pakistan also has one of The World’s most diverse and rich cultures, equaled only by its spectacular natural beauty as home to part of Kashmir, the Khyber Pass and high mountain peaks like K2. Once upon a time in the not so distant past, Texan gun enthusiasts brought their prized antique revolvers to Peshawar’s gun smiths to make copies, actor Robert DeNiro posed for pictures with restaurant owners while vacationing in Chitral, and Mick Jagger tested his dance skills with Lahore’s most well-known Mujra dancers. And many of Pakistan’s greatest musicians and singers like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan regularly collaborated with their counterparts in Europe and America such as Peter Gabriel and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

Getting an Indian visa has become as tough as getting an American one, says popular singer Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan, who was on a four-city tour of the country.

“Visa has become an issue in the past four to five months. It (Indian visa) is now as difficult as getting an American visa. Insha Allah things will change,” Shafqat, told in an interview after his Delhi gig, the sixth till date. (more…)
