Journey of Light

The Seekers

RAYAABA THE SEEKERS
ALL EVENTS WERE HELD AT CENTENARY SQUARE BIRMINGHAM
Live Audio Description

The Seekers is a group led by Rubaya Pirzada, a Sufi artist, and formed by amazingly talented independent artists.

“Journey of Light” brings you colours of Sufi tradition presented by Rubaya, fused with jazz keys by Dominc Scohy, exotic rhythms played by Richard Kensington, live poetry by Rango, and an enchanting dance by beautiful Aruna. 

The performance represents the rich multicultural heritage of Birmingham and Great Britain. It also depicts the rich culture, values, and solidarity between communities and people of different backgrounds and ideologies. 

A group of choir members sing on a stage, led by a conductor.
