Enjoy A Special Evening of World Music and Dance at the “Playing for the Planet” Benefit Concert: 6 Great Acts in One Show! – Saturday, October 24th @ 6:30 p.m.
“Benefit concert for what?” you might ask …to raise global awareness of the serious implications of the current climate crisis (most namely global warming) and encourage world-wide action to save our planet. (See www.350.org) College professor, ethnomusicologist, and world musician Warren Senders (see blog) came up with the wonderful idea to produce a world music and dance show in order to aid this all important cause. As an avid fan of world music, it always gives me great pleasure to see my passion employed as a platform to encourage global unity and well-being!
Concert-goers will be treated to music and dance from four regions of the world including, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. For a brief description of the concert program, as well as short bios on the performers- just click here. If you are interested in brief sound or video clips from the artists, then click on the links below. The “additional info” is provided compliments of Mr. Senders, himself, and will give you a more complete picture of each artist.
