This event is over.


Beauty of Soul infuses poetry from various languages, cultures and contexts under the pulse of Sufistic aura. Artist and poet Noor Iskandar will share a weaving of words that celebrate the pain and poise of living. From these starting points, the Bangladeshi band Zero Effect will also share songs that extend a wreath of offerings to the space—reflecting on the transience of life’s journey and the beauty of seasons in a faraway home country. We invite you to lose and find yourselves amid these poetic and musical celebrations.


The programme is presented by the Migrant Writers of Singapore.
