Sachal Ensemble: Song of Lahore

 

Serious kudos go to MDC Live Arts for what sounds like an extraordinary and thoughtful series of cultural events designed to explore the global diversity of Muslim culture.

The objective of the series is to celebrate Muslim and Middle Eastern and North African communities as a valuable part of Miami’s richly diverse culture” with events of all the performing arts by stars in their respective fields.

A lot of others must feel the same as GableStage just announced an extra matinee this Saturday, June 24, the day before it closes a very successful run. Read Full Post & Comments »
