ONE of the most popular events on the Pietermaritzburg entertainment calendar is Charam Masala Productionz’s InfuZioN 3, which this year takes place at 5.30 pm for 6 pm on November 3 at the KZN Blind and Deaf hall.

The third instalment of this event is organised by Shainaaz Dawood and aims to support disadvantaged people in the city.

Performing at the event this year will be Iqbal Nisaar and Party, which is a traditional Soofie Qawali group that have been together for more than a decade.

Led by Iqbal Husain, a master on the harmonium, and lead singer Nisaar Adam, they produce music that has the power to capture the spirit.

Dawood said: “The team all work during the day so they can only practise their music in their spare time, but when you hear them you realise that they are of international standard and surely are one of the best and most versatile Qawali groups in the country.”

Also on the bill is Anwar Adam, who started singing at the age of six. He recently entered and won the Rising Stars It’s Your Voice talent search competition on Glow TV.

Fan favourites Swastika Sungeeth, one of the oldest bands in Pietermaritzburg, perform throughout the country. They specialise in dance and chutney music.

Tickets for InfuZioN 3 are R50 each and can be booked by phoning 066 221 8959 or 079 858 0179.

Dawood and Vischal Singh will also be embarking on an initiative to create a free programme for the city’s youth.

“Basically anyone who is underprivileged and who possesses talent, be it singing, dancing, writing, playing instruments or performing arts, but does not have the funds to develop their talent, can join us,” Dawood said.

“There are a few professionals who have volunteered their services for free to facilitate this programme. We want people to believe that dreams do come true and life does get better.

“With the increase of crime and drug abuse in our community, mainly from and by the underprivileged community, we would like to create some sort of hope for them by providing this programme.” — Supplied.
