Nobel Committee and Sangam

The Nobel Committee has requested SANGAM, Charles Lloyd with Zakir Hussain and Eric Harland to perform during the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo on December 10th. This year the Nobel Peace Prize is shared by Al Gore and the head of the IPCC, Rajendra Pachauri. It was the personal request of the head of the IPCC, Mr. Pachauri, to invite Zakir Hussain to perform.

This is a beautiful way to end the year by making a contribution to an event and organization that has the same goals and ideals as the music makers themselves.

Al Gore and Mr. Pachauri both continue their important efforts to slow down the destructive process of global warming. The world, Mother Earth, is in need of all of our help in the most dire way. So we are very honored to make this contribution to the environment at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony through the vibrations of the music .
