Hindustani classical musician and climate change advocate Warren Senders will unite musicians from diverse traditions for “Singing For The Planet: World Voices Against Climate Change” on May 10. The concert, the ninth in this series, will be held at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street, Boston, at 7:00 p.m. Musicians Deepti Navaratna, Dean Stevens, and Gabrielle Agachiko, will perform at the event. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Massachusetts chapter of 350.org.

Devoted to the cause of climate change, Warren Senders has brought together numerous musicians for his concerts. The audience at the May 10 concert will get to sample music from varied traditions. Trained in South Indian classical Carnatic music, Deepti Navaratna has been earning praise for her work in making Carnatic music more accessible to contemporary audiences. Guitarist and singer Dean Stevens, hailed by Boston Globe as a powerful and moving performer, brings his love of Latin America to his music. Kenya-born vocalist and jazz musician Gabrielle Agachiko, founder of the band Agachiko, completes the trio.

Co-founded by environmentalist Bill McKibben, 350.org represents over 200 environmental organizations that are working toward reducing the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. For details about the climate change concert, visit Warren Senders' website.
