The Spittin’ Light, Healing the Hood gigs in Glasgow and Edinburgh over the weekend were simply superb. Everyone had their own favourite lines, moments and artists e.g.:
- Edinburgh… It’s special, it’s special, it’s special… SPECIAL! (Mecca 2 Medina)
- You’re beautiful, you’re a star! (Poetic Pilgrimage)
- Hallelujah, Alhamdulillah… Hallelujah (Amir Sulaiman)
Videos will be out soon. I’d like to give due props to our partners at Radical Middle Way, who we were very excited to be working with on this, and who we look forward to collaborating in future with too.
We had some murmurings of discontent before the events from some questioning the religious credentials of this event. Some even suggested that the realms of Islam and culture should be kept separate.
