The event was co-organised with ‘Building Bridges’ and the ‘Bristol Multi Faith Forum’ as a means of promoting community cohesion and inter-faith dialogue. The evening started with the African based Christian group ‘One World One Choir’ singing a few hymns and some cultural songs before leaving the stage to Dawud Wharnsby who has livened the crowd of over fifty people, from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, to their feet. The leader of the singing group Alphonse and Dawud then did a duet together which was a great example of two talented singers with different faiths and ethnic background coming together to produce spectacular entertainment to the attendees. Dawud sang many songs including ‘Don’t Talk to me about Muhammad’ and ‘Taleal Badru aleyna’ with Alphonse joining in with his drum.
They also showed mutual respect through short speeches; and stressed the fact that Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and all other faiths can live together side by side in perfect harmony just like how they sang their songs. The event finished with Dawud’s CD and books going on sale which was donated to charity.
