Help Save Our Wonderful Planet While Be Serenaded by Some of Boston’s Top World Music and Jazz Artists: Don’t Miss the “Singing For The Planet” Benefit Concert for the Environment: Saturday, June 12th @ 7:00 p.m.
Mili Bermejo (Latin Jazz) (with Dan Greenspan) – This Latin Jazz singer/composer is currently on the faculty of the Berklee College of Music. Most noted for her expertise at effectively blending elements of Latin American poetry and folk music with a highly improvisational jazz style, she has been performing for over 20 years with a voice that has been compared to that of Abbey Lincoln and Sarah Vaughn.
Warren Senders (Hindustani Classical Vocal Music) (with Raga Ensemble: Preeti Chakravarti, harmonium, Akshay Navaladi, tabla, and Vijaya Sundaram, supporting vocals and tamboura) Mr. Senders is currently serving on the faculty at The New England Conservatory of Music. He is a true virtuoso of the highly improvisational khyal form of singing, a classical genre from Northern India, and is presently recognized world-wide as the premier non-Indian vocalist with respect to this song form. Critics have marveled at his ability to balance both traditionality and creativity within all of his performances.
Dominique Eade (Jazz) This composer/singer is currently a professor at The New England Conservatory of Music. As a performer, she is known for her versatility and improvisational expertise, and is often featured at premier jazz festivals all over the world. As a singer, songwriter, and arranger, she has recorded 2 critically acclaimed cds for RCA.

Last October, I had the fortune of attending an earlier concert, also put on by Mr. Senders for the same wonderful cause, this time in recognition of “International Climate Change Awareness Day.” As an ardent lover of world music, I thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Here is a summary of some of the highlights of that event, complete with photos. As I have said so many times before, it is truly a wonderful thing when world music can be employed as a catalyst in support of global well-being in any form. Kudos to Mr. Senders for giving us, the audience, yet another opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful project, complete with such exquisite music!
All proceeds of this event go to benefit the mission of 350.org.
