Brooklyn Nomads To Play Benefit Concert For Exodus Refugee Immigration

Brooklyn Nomads To Play Benefit Concert For Exodus Refugee Immigration

Musicians from the six countries named in the most recent U.S. travel ban are coming to Indianapolis June 25 to perform a musical tribute to peace. 

The group is known as the Brooklyn Nomads, and founder Hadi Eldebek says the night will be a joy filled mix of voices, and instruments.

“When you look at this band on the stage and see how we are all interacting together across these cultural borders, if you may, you will feel as if there is a connection between us," says Eldebek, "and that connection will reflect immediately to the people listening.”

The concert will benefit Exodus Refugee Immigration and the Immigrant Welcome Center.  It takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Indiana Landmarks Center on Central Avenue in downtown Indianapolis.

It’s the first event put together by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church’s newly created Center for Faith, Justice and the Arts. IndyFringe Theater is partnering as well. 

Tickets and more information on the musicians is available on the IndyFringe website.
