Ghulam Abbas Khan, a prominent singer from India, performs an acoustic set of Classical, Ghazals and Sufi music in the stunning surrounds of Shoreditch Church. Set in the heart of Shoreditch, the church has a long history of nurturing and celebrating the connection between creativity and spirit. It provides the perfect setting for music performed to achieve union with the divine – the essence of Sufism.
All proceeds from the event go towards Foundation for Change, a charity based at the church that supports individuals with histories of drug or alcohol misuse to live meaningful and happier lives. Their unique approach, crafted over 12 years, involves educating those they work with in psychology and philosophy, providing them with specific tools and knowledge to make positive and enduring change.
This unique event is being organised by Manju Main, a promoter of Indian musicians. Incidentally, Manju is Bob’s mum (a co-director of Foundation for Change) and is arranging this concert as a way to raise funds for a charity she truly believes in and whose approach she has repeatedly seen change lives.
