In support of Nishkam SWAT ( Sikh Welfare & Awareness Team), YSM8 are buzzing to invite you to a non-profit veggie supper-club with a live Qawwali fusion performance by Abi Sampa + Band.

YSM8 ( yes mate!) series was founded by creative Poonam Dhuffer. We bring fresh flavours straight from the Punjabi kitchen to South – East London tables. The cultivation of a communal spirit and sharing ideas will be, as always, at the heart of YSM8. The series of inclusive supper clubs events celebrate vegetarian Punjabi cuisine fused with global beats, so expect some uplifting music, home-cooked food, and a booze-free zone.

Abi Sampa blends the sounds of Qawwali, Carnatic and Western music, creating sounds that empower and uplift you. Expect to hear Tabla beats, harmonium, Veena, and guitar. If like us, you love the King of Qawwali - Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, then you won’t want to miss this performance.
