The London-based music ensemble, The Berakah Players, the professional band of the innovative multi-faith charity Berakah Arts, is to perform in the West London Synagogue of British Jews on Sunday 4 June in a concert entitled Law, Love, Life.

The Berakah Players (the word means ‘blessing’ in both Hebrew and Arabic) brings together Jewish, Muslim and Christian musicians, drawing on Middle Eastern and Classical influences, fused with Jazz, Folk and Rock.

Principal Rabbi of the West London Synagogue, Helen Freeman, commented that “[w]e are thrilled to welcome back The Berakah Players – by popular demand – for what promises to be another spectacular performance.

“Law, Love, Life will be an oasis of beauty and peace in these trying times, when it’s particularly important for communities to come together to build bridges, to recognise their diversity, but also to celebrate their shared values.

“This sentiment is all the more poignant in the aftermath of the recent tragic attack in Manchester.”

Mohammed Nazam, Director & Leader of The Berakah Players, and trustee of Berakah Arts, added: “In light of the recent tragic events it’s even more important to continue our work of spreading a message of peace, understanding and unity between people of different faiths and heritage.”

Using the power of music, Law, Love, Life aims to celebrate some of the principles that bind humanity, in an uplifting and inspiring concert performed for an audience of people of all faiths and none.

They will be joined by faith representatives, and by figures from the worlds of culture, diplomacy, media and politics.
