GFPA curates 60th Anniversary concert for UNITAR in Geneva

GFPA strengthened its partnership with UNITAR by directing a gala concert entitled “Music from all corners of the world for peace and our planet” to conclude UNITAR’s 60th Anniversary year in Geneva at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève on 16 November 2023.

The concert paid tribute to UNITAR’s commitment to empower individuals and organizations to create positive change for peace and sustainability.

Featuring international musicians from India, the Andes, and the Maghreb region, the concert reflected the nature of UNITAR’s global activities.

Artists included:

Jil Gnawa, a group of Algerian-Moroccan origin with a mastery of Gnawa music, blending secular African songs with sacred mystical chants;

Indian flautist, Maestro Shashank Subramanyam, and his ensemble, presenting his original composition and arrangements in the southern Indian classical tradition;

Grupo Siembra & Danzandina from Ecuador, a culturally rich ensemble of Andean dancers and singers.
