Celebrating Mahatma Gandhi’s Birthday!

October 2nd, 2014 marked the 145th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and his message of non-violence still echoes across the globe.

And in this matter the Embassy of India in Lebanon organised several events:

  • A lecture by Ratish Nanda: The Tomb of Humayun Restoration that was held at LAU.
  • A photo exhibition of Benoy K. Behl; the topic of his photographs covers the Islamic Architecture in India, that is also held in LAU from October 2 till 10

  • A Concert by Sonam Haira and the Sufi Gospel Project, that was help yesterday at UNESCO.

The music they produce blends together the many voices of language, religion and music to create one voice, the voice of faith. Their sound is fresh and unique and in fact, Sonam has created a new genre with The Sufi Gospel Project. It is called a ‘project’ because the music the band produces is ever evolving and an exploration of this genre.

Traditional Western Gospel melds with Indian classical sounds and Indian Spiritual texts are enriched by elements of western poetry to create a sound that touches every soul.

They will be playing again tonight in Batrouniyat, Batroun at 8h00 p.m.

Make sure to be there!
