Guru Nanak's Message Of Peace Through Music

Sun 24 May, 05:00 PM, The Royal Festival Hall

Session 3

In an unprecedented move, Darbar Arts Culture Heritage Trust, are bringing together three leading artists from the Sikh, Hindu and Muslim faith groups to celebrate the life and teachings of Guru Nanak in the form of sacred music.

Taking place on the 24th of May at The Royal Festival Hall in London, the concert is a landmark event which will encapsulate one of Guru Nanak’s key messages, ‘the liberation of the human spirit’.

Performed by the finest musicians from India and Pakistan, the concert will feature Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammed Qawwal sharing qawwali from the Sufi tradition, Bhai Anantvir Singh & Rajwinder Kaur sharing kirtan from the Sikh dharam and Aruna Sairam sharing bhajans and abhangs from the Hindu dharam. The concert will also see a chorus of 100 sangat and a group of British school children sharing the stage for the kirtan aspect.

The concert will mark the UK launch of the ‘Peace Charter for Forgiveness and Reconciliation'. 

Guru Nanak founded the central concept of langar, wholesome vegetarian food freely served in all Sikh gurduwaras, to people of all sexes, caste and religion. In the spirit of this, all profits will be distributed to two charities inspired by Guru Nanak’s message; NishkamSWAT which provides meals to homeless people in the UK and Zero Hunger with Langar that supports children with meals in Malawi, Africa.
