Khaled Siddiq headlines Glasgow Nasheed concert fundraiser for earthquake victims in Turkiye and Syria

Event organiser Sufi Festivals is staging “a phenomenal one-off showcase of Sufi sounds and artists” to raise vital funds to help those displaced by the catastrophic earthquake that struck Turkiye and Syria on 6 February.

Taking place at Tramway Theatre in Glasgow on Friday, 5 May, this night of Nasheed (Islamic devotional) music and touching poetry boasts a line-up of internationally acclaimed artists including British rapper Khaled Siddiq (pictured top), Ahmad Ikhlas (Jamaica) and Humza Bouzharm (Morocco), and spoken word from poet Sukina Noor.

Singer-songwriter Siddiq has become one of the most recognisable and influential young British Muslims through his music and creative expression. The artist, who is of English, Irish and Jamaican heritage, is best known for his catchy Nasheed and socially conscious songs, such as Ya Habibi, Rise and Fall, and On Deen, which have been streamed and viewed by tens of millions of people.

“Join us for an evening of sharing goodness and happiness and to raise funds to benefit people who need our support. This will be a beautiful evening for all the family and a chance to make a real impact,” say Sufi Festivals.

Tickets are priced £20 for adults and £15 for children, and are available online from Eventbrite.

All proceeds will go to charity Action for Humanity, who are working directly on the ground in the regions hit by the earthquake.
