Muslim Music Festival Coming to London
Published May 16, 2006

The cream of the world’s Muslim artists assembles in London this summer for the 21st Music Village festival. Guest visiting artists from all over the Islamic world unite with leading UK-based Muslim performers, storytellers, speakers and workshop leaders in a 17-day program of free events across the city.

The Salaam Music Village festival unveils a spectrum of Muslim cultures worldwide and celebrates their immense contribution over the centuries to the world’s intellectual and creative heritage.  The programme reveals for Muslims and non-Muslim alike the breathtaking diversity of artistic forms generated by Muslim communities around the world as an _expression of their faith.

Salaam” means “peace” in Arabic and peace is at the very core of Islamic belief. The festival is a call to peace that aims to draw attention to key examples of peaceful co-existence and constructive engagement between Muslims and followers of other faiths – and none, relations that far outweigh periodic episodes of interfaith conflict.

All public events are free admission to allow all members of Britain’s diverse national and faith communities to attend, regardless of income.

Key events include: open-air Festival Weekends in Kew Gardens*  (1 & 2 July) and Regent’s Park (8  & 9 July); Evening concerts at 16 venues around the city, including 2 special showcase concerts at Union Chapel, a lunchtime Festival Club at the October Gallery and a pre-booked Schools Programme at 3 national museums.

Guest visiting artists  include:

·          BOSNIA: Sultan Mehmet Fatih Sufi group from Sarajevo

·          CHINA: Dao Lang Maqam Uyghur ensemble from Xinjiang
