Geet Sangeet Friday

This group is led by Beena Masand
There is music and singing in Hindi and Gujurti . We aim to support people who have moved to the UK and those born here too.

Gentle exercise and warm up followed by singing to aid reminiscence, singing games such as Antakshuri and opportunities to sing to all if you would like! We also use video and played music eg from Bollywood

As funding allows we aim to deliver members our musical memory boxes in a bag, increasing the feeling of connection whilst on Zoom.

Please contact us via email if you would like to join . Suggested donation of £3/session.
