Vaisakhi Celebrations at City Hall
On Saturday afternoon, 9th April, we were delighted to provide specialist audio support for Vaisakhi at London’s City Hall, an event which celebrates one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar. Organised by the Mayor of London and supported by Singh Sabha London East and EY Sikh network, the public event included spiritual music, food, turban tying, folk music, martial arts and children’s performances.
The vibrant event included performances both inside the Greater London Authority’s Chamber in City Hall as well as outside on The Scoop.
Inside the Chamber, spiritual music was performed by the Gurmat Sangeet Orchestra – a nine piece ensemble comprising musicians who play songs of praise on a range of traditional instruments.
Outside, the celebration of Sikh tradition, heritage and culture continued with colourful displays of martial arts, drumming and children’s performances.
