Amal - Hope (Concert)

Amal - Hope (Concert): Arts Canteen and 'Celebrate Life Events' will bring together their collective strengths in relation to the arts scene in London and present an evening of powerful, heartfelt performances by some of the best artists from the Middle East and Greece who are based in our capital city. Living in a world that is increasingly filled with sad news from many places, this is an opportunity where the universal language of music can touch everyone and where also the mediums of storytelling and film can inspire and educate. The artists taking part will be: Olcay Bayir and friends (playing innovative melodies that combine ‘old folk-roots’ with modern day composition and style), Mponendis (mixing traditional and modern Greek sounds), Cassandre Balbar, Alia Alzougib (who will be story-telling), Peace Ambassador Prem Rawat, Attab Haddad (on the Oud) and DJ Sebastian Merrick. Taking place on 10 September, 2016 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
