The Charitable Concert Showcasing a Range of Musical Genres at the World Heart Beat Embassy Gardens, London – November 3, 2023, in Aid of Charity World Heart Beat.

In a world often marked by discord and division, the transformative power of music takes center stage at the Music Saves the World concert, a remarkable international collective of musicians united by a profound humanitarian mission. This unique event, set to take place in Nine Elms, London, is a heartfelt testament to the enduring ability of art to heal, unite, and uplift.

Founded by Maria Semushkina, a cultural entrepreneur at CultLab, promoter, and producer with an impressive track record in the world of music, this collective of artists promotes a message of unity. Over the past year, Music Saves the World has successfully hosted concerts in various European cities, and the upcoming London performance is poised to continue this tradition.

The World Heart Beat Embassy Gardens, a place dedicated to nurturing young talents from diverse backgrounds, provides an apt setting for this journey. The event’s proceeds are destined to support scholarships for refugee musicians under the care of World Heart Beat, a charitable arts organization founded by Sahana Gero MBE. World Heart Beat Music Academy helps young people who, in the absence of opportunities, would never have access to musical education.

The line-up of musicians represents a diverse tapestry of talent. Leading the musical voyage is Fyodor Biryuchev, a pianist and composer renowned for his compositions that evoke tenderness and high expressivity.

Olga Glazova, a gusli player, composer, and singer-songwriter, bridges the gap between ancient Russian musical traditions and contemporary audiences, offering a soulful journey through time.
Vladyslav Kuznetsov’s minimalist exploration of Philip Glass’s “Metamorphosis” invites the audience to contemplate the profound simplicity within music.
Synecdoche Montauk, led by Savva Rozanov, presents an imaginative acoustic set filled with poetry, prompting reflection on themes of identity and nostalgia.
Finally, Gabriel Prokofiev’s fusion of classical and electronic elements highlights the power of music to transcend genres and boundaries.
