Over a thousand musicians will take part in the new initiative
Gregory Porter, Morcheeba and ESKA are among over a thousand artists who are set to perform intimate shows in people’s homes this autumn! The initiative has been set up by Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds to raise money and awareness of the ongoing refugee crisis. The new series is called ‘Give a Home’, and will take place on 20 September, bringing established and emerging artists together with refugees and local communities at over 300 shows in more than 60 countries around the world. VICE and Facebook Live will be live-streaming the concerts globally.
Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International said: “Music and art have always been powerful partners to the cause of justice because they share an ability to stir something deep within us. They help us to look beyond borders and see what unites us.”
