Is music part of your prayers, meditation or devotional rituals? How does it influence you and in what way is it shaped by tradition, faith and culture? What are some of the themes that are expressed?

Step into a safe space of interfaith learning, where you can explore these questions (and more) and share your music experiences in the context of religious traditions and practices across different denominations. Delve into the importance and functions of music, as well as how it affects one’s spiritual journey.

This dialogue session is facilitated by Farid Hamid and is open to anyone who has an interest in sharing about this subject matter. There will be no panel of experts. To ensure the quality of the experience, each session will be limited to 30 participants.
