I am writting to you in request of your support for an upcoming coming charity event (Masti in the Basti) in aid of a slum based project in West India.
Organised by Shanti International, Masti in the Basti is especially aimed at supporting Talimi Haq School based in the Priyamanna Basti of Culcutta, West India. (http://shanti-international.org.uk/index.php/Latest/Welcome.html)
As part of the event we are looking for artists who will be able to entertain our audience of about 180 guests. In particular I was interested in a classical act and a jazz performing artist. Subject to confirmation the act will be amongst a few others including, a stand-up comedian, poetry readings, singing artist, druming artist and a classical sitar performing artist.
The event will be taking place on Saturday 2nd August 2008 from 4pm – 9pm at Archangel bar/club venue in Kensington, London. (http://www.archangelw8.com/)
Further, I would like to think that the aim of this event will be two-fold; to serve as a great platform for artists at to showcase their talent as well as to enrich the lives of hundreds of young children at Talimi Haq School. With your added support I’m sure this event will become to be a truely memorable date.
I very much look forward to hearing from you. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me on 07824511019 or via email.
