Salem is a South Asian Recording Artist (Singer, Composer, Song Writer) He performs in Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, French and Arabic. He has performed at numerous musical events across the United States and Canada. Born in Saudi Arabia, to a family from Lahore, Salem and his family migrated to North America when he was 10 years old. At a very young age, Salem was drawn towards music and demonstrated his passion for singing by taking it up as a hobby.
Salem started singing in his early teenage years focusing on Bollywood tunes. Later he started experimenting with some fusion of South Asian and American music. As fate would have it, Salem was selected to be a star lead in an Italian Opera in High School unexpectedly and without an audition. His musical journey has been truly multicultural!
Since then, with much appreciation and encouragement bestowed upon him, Salem realized and embraced his love for music as not only his passion but a career. Music is not a hobby or a pastime for Salem, it is a way of life. Salem lives through music. He views his talent as a blessing and wants to share this love of music with everyone he comes across.
Often and humbly compared to Atif Aslam, before finding his own niche, Salem is motivated and influenced by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Abida Parveen, Led Zepplin, Muse, Maroon 5, and Michael Jackson. He is a truly global musical talent.
