I just performed at Haverford College just outside Philadelphia for a benefit for the victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan. It was a very heartfelt and memorable evening featuring presentations by professor Jamal Elias and Islamic Relief USA representative Yousef Abdallah, as well as performances by a wonderful singer/songwriter Arooj Aftab and the punk band The Kominas. I was accompanied in my performance by Sameer Gupta on the tabla. We had a great turnout and the mood was just magical! It was such a pleasure to play for such a noble and necessary cause.
The flood in Pakistan is one of the most under-reported, yet most devastating, disasters to hit the planet ever. It has displaced tens of millions of people, and most still have no access to basic amenities. Please consider donating to the Islamic Relief USA Fund today, and help the people of Pakistan begin to rebuild their lives.
