Salam's success in England is due to the famous DJ Rob Da Bank, from BBC One, which had invited Shantel (Stefan Hantel his real name), a Romanian-born artist. It brought a CD to DJ Barry with Salam's songs, which he presented as the last hit in music. Shantal talked about Salam's gipsy pop as being gangsta style, and one of the songs, "You've burned me in the heart", who also was aired on the BBC, is heard in the Balkan countries.
"Music is a kind of gangsta style. Gipsy pop is a revolutionary style. I heard the song for the first time in Turkey. This style is evolving and now is in great demand in Romania. Believe that in more than two years will arrive in Austria and Germany" said at the time the guest of the show from BBC Radio One.
