Sting sings ‘Fragile” for Pakistan

September 16, 2009

Pakistan’s nearly 2.3 million people forced from their homes in the northwest are beginning to get more attention beyond the borders. Last weekend Pakistani artistes as well singing great Sting came together for a concert in the U.N.General Assemby in support of the men, women and children who have become  refugees in their own land in one of the largest human dislocations in recent years.

The Concert for Pakistan  was put together by Salman Ahmad, founder of  the Pakistani sufi rock group Junoon , which has created a mass following with its songs of peace  and harmony.

Top billing was Sting, though,  with his song “How Fragile We Are ” .

Here’s the video of that performance from the On Faith feature of The Washington Post.
