SOAS Interfaith Music Festival

  • Music
Free
Music may have been Jimi Hendrix's religion, but for the 19 acts playing at this free all-dayer the link's a bit more literal than that. Now in it's second year, the SOAS Interfaith Music Festival is a celebration of the music of all the major faiths in London, from Judaism, Sikhism and Buddhism to African Animism. Musically, that means everything from Middle Eastern jazz to Ceilidhs.
