Former Strings’ frontman was seen in an impromptu jam session on stage with Junoon
If you’re a 90s kid, seeing Junoon and Strings live on stage jamming in an impromptu session would undoubtedly be the best day of your life. For those who attended Junoon’s live concert on February 18 at the Pakistan Expo 2020, this dream came to life when former Strings’ frontman Faisal Kapadia hopped on stage midconcert and had a jam session with rockers Ali Azmat, Salman Ahmad and Brian O'Connell.
In an ode to Junoon’s musical careers, as well as his long-standing friendship with the band members, the Durr singer took to his Instagram to share a short clip from the night in which he can be seen jamming to the 2007 Junoon song, Yaaron Yehi Dosti Hai.

Applauding his fellow musicians, Kapadia captioned the post, “[I] had a blast last night, what a show Junoon, wow!” He further added, “[I am] humbled by their kindness. [It is] amazing how 30+ years have passed by. Yaaron yehi dosti hai [This is what friendship is].

A few days later, the Sajni hitmaker shared another video from the same night where Azmat, Kapadia and Ahmad are seen reminiscing old times spent together on stage. They’re joined by drummer O’Connell and actor Omair Rana as well.

The clip begins with Kapadia praising the band and their energy saying, ‘You guys rock. You guys should do more and more concerts.” Azmat then joins in giving a shoutout to Kapadia as he screams, “Did I not say that Faisal is the nicest guy in the music industry? Did I not say that?” which is followed by applause and cheers from the audience.
Nostalgic for old times, Kapadia started sharing how far back their friendships go. “I've known Ali from the times he used to hide in cupboards and I’ve known Salman from when he first wrote an instrumental song called Samina.” Azmat joins in playfully commenting on how he would still hide in the cupboard if he could fit in one.
Ahmad then adds, taking the mic and sharing how there is often rivalry amongst band members, “Tonight, I feel that Faisal Kapadia broke the ice and came to a show where many people did not show up.”
Before Strings split up in 2021, the band’s most recent collaboration with Junoon was in 2018 with Red Bull Music Soundclash where they performed each other’s original songs together.
In the fan-tastic life of Kapadia ever since he moved to Dubai, the singer’s Instagram is full of selfies with celebrities such as Chris Martin, Jaaved Jaffrey, Hari Haran, among others
