Salim-Sulaiman perform at a Jubilee Concert in Houston, Texas.

Renowned artists and composers Salim and Sulaiman Merchant have obtained accolades in the Indian film industry and have performed in a number of prominent spaces including at the opening ceremony of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Their memorable songs such as ‘Jubilee Mubarak’, ‘Ali Mawla’, and ‘Shukran Allah’, which were performed on the occasion of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s Diamond Jubilee, still resonate in our minds. To coincide with the upcoming Aga Khan Music Awards, we spoke with the two brothers about their journey.

One of the initiatives during the Diamond Jubilee year of The National Task force for Jamati Programs and activities was the Global Village Program which encouraged the jamat to reflect on their own prejudices and showcase cultural diversity through various performances.

The programme - 'Global Village' was held in Bhuj - Kutch Jamatkhana on 4th May 2018 to make Jamat understand the concept of pluralism.
