On 6 February 2023, a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Türkiye and Syria, the largest to hit Türkiye in almost 90 years. Affecting millions of people, the earthquake left 1.5 million homeless and led to the loss of over 50,000 lives.

Leading Hong Kong musicians join together to perform an electrifying programme of music inspired by classical, Sufi and folk music traditions from Türkiye. Featuring renowned Turkish composers such as Fazil Say and Grammy Award winner Erberk Eryılmaz, we invite you to immerse yourself in an evening of dynamic music.

Proceeds from this concert will be donated to the earthquake relief operation of AFAD, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority in Türkiye. Your donations will make a difference in the lives of those who have been impacted by this tragedy.
