British rock legend Peter Gabriel is teaming up with one of Pakistan's biggest musical stars in a bid to raise money and awareness in the aftermath of the deadly floods which struck Pakistan three months ago.

Salman Ahmad, who is the founder of South Asian music group "Junoon" has worked with Gabriel on his hit song "Open your Eyes," to raise money for the cause.

The collaboration has Gabriel singing vocals over a musical score by Ahmad.

"This is a huge tragedy and maybe because of the worst association [with] terrorism with Pakistan there's been a pathetic response," Gabriel said in an interview with CBC Radio Q.

"These are people suffering in extraordinary ways and I think we've failed terribly."

"This is Salman's song and I contributed to the English version. You put your own soul into it and hope it touches people," he added.
