Jazz fans have something to look forward to this month, with Buddhist Global Relief’s upcoming annual Concert to Feed the Hungry. An event that New Yorkers, Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike, have come to look forward to, the concert provides not only provocatively cool tunes, but much needed funds to help feed the many hungry in the world.
This year is special, though, as it marks the 10th anniversary of Buddhist Global Relief, an organization whose mission is to help feed the hungry and relieve suffering in many parts of the world. To support this mission, Daniel Blake, jazz musician and all around cool dude, organizes some of the hottest, hippest musicians in the contemporary jazz scene.
This year, Dan has organized a veritable auditory ambrosia. The concert will feature an exciting lineup of artists representing the diversity and unity of purpose behind BGR’s mission. Award-winning vocalists Kavita Shah and Camila Meza will give intimate performances of their original compositions and well-known standards. The St. Mark’s Choir will present its unique blend of gospel and roots music. The concert will also feature rare performances of folkloric “Candombe” drumming from Uruguay as well as sacred mask dances of Bhutan.
